The Standard known as “BS 65000:2014 Guidance on organizational resilience” has challenged the author group and been through extensive revisions before finally getting to the Public comments stage.

More information
BS 65000 is a guidance standard, primarily aimed at helping organisations understand Organizational Resilience at the strategic level.  It is built on principles that help identify characteristics, attributes and capabilities that will directly improve the resilience of any organisation.  It is not a compliance standard, but does link and to an extent rely on other standards and professional practices that form parts of the big picture Organizational Resilience represents. 
BS65000 has been developed to be flexible and adaptive, it asks questions of the organization and its values seeking to link the answers directly to activities that can then be aligned to deliver the right operational performance for the business.  
The Continuity Forum has been part of the working group since its inception and if you have any questions, would like to know more or want to get involved with this work more directly then please contact us directly here or call us on +44 (0) 208 993 1599.
