|Directory of Software & Services for BS 25999 and Disaster Recovery|
An international standard specifically for business continuity has been mooted for many years. Although continuity has been included in other standards, such as ISO 27001, nothing has really filled the void in terms of a dedicated detailed standard. This position is about to change.
Circa 2004, BSI, the British Standards Institute, created a committee of about 40 continuity sector experts charged with responsibility to created a standard, which was numbered BS25999.
The standard was in part be based upon an existing document, also published by BSI (in 2003), known as PAS56. The first part of the standard was be code of practive, which specified the minimum requirements for good practice. The second part was the 'specification' which was basically the statements of conformity (what must be done to comply).
In 2012 the second part, with other input, formed the basis of a new standard, published by ISO: ISO 22301.
