ISO’s Technical Committee ISO/TC 292 has published its latest security and resilience international standard, ISO 22316:2017, ‘Organizational resilience. Principles and attributes’. This short standard, with just ten pages of content, establishes the principles for organizational resilience and identifies the attributes and activities that support an organization in enhancing its resilience.
ISO 22316 defines organizational resilience as ‘the ability of an organization to absorb and adapt in a changing environment’; and states that organizational resilience enables an organization to deliver its objectives and to survive and prosper. ‘More resilient organizations can anticipate and respond to threats and opportunities, arising from sudden or gradual changes in their internal and external context’ says the standard.
[ISO standards now follow a Higher Level Structure which allows conformance to multiple standards using common system elements.]
