ISO/IEC 27031:2011 describes the concepts and principles of information and communication technology (ICT) readiness for business continuity, and provides a framework of methods and processes to identify and specify all aspects (such as performance criteria, design, and implementation) for improving an organization's ICT readiness to ensure business continuity. It applies to any organization (private, governmental, and non-governmental, irrespective of size) developing its ICT readiness for business continuity program (IRBC), and requiring its ICT services/infrastructures to be ready to support business operations in the event of emerging events and incidents, and related disruptions, that could affect continuity (including security) of critical business functions. It also enables an organization to measure performance parameters that correlate to its IRBC in a consistent and recognized manner.

The scope of ISO/IEC 27031:2011 encompasses all events and incidents (including security related) that could have an impact on ICT infrastructure and systems. It includes and extends the practices of information security incident handling and management and ICT readiness planning and services.

In most organizations, the processes that deliver products and services depend on information and communication technology (ICT). Disruption to ICT can therefore constitute a strategic risk, damaging the organization’s ability to operate and undermining its reputation. The consequences of a disruptive incident vary and can be far-reaching, and might not be immediately obvious at the time.

ISO 27031 is a recently released international standard. It provides recommendations for information and communications technology (ICT) continuity management based on ISO 22301 and ISO 27001. This course focuses on the technical and procedural issues surrounding ICT Service Continuity & Disaster Recovery examining the major pitfalls and common assumptions which prevent both Service Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans from working.
