DRI Auditing a Business Continuity Program ISO 22301 (BCLE AUD) training

About the course:


  • This course provides education, hands-on experience using a case study, and a guide to performing audits of business continuity management systems and programs using ISO 22301, 2019 edition

  • Auditing business continuity management systems using a recognized international standard is the best method to identify opportunities to enhance and improve performance. Auditing supplier business continuity management systems is a requirement for some industries and for organizations that have certified, or are seeking certification of, their business continuity management systems and programs. Auditing is also a must for organizations seeking to identify the resiliency of critical suppliers, those with low tolerance for risk, and those seeking to enhance organizational resilience

  • DRI’s ISO 22301 audit course is designed for business continuity professionals, risk managers, internal auditors, and consultants. The course provides the foundation for auditing — the collection of evidence using interviews, reviewing documents, and surveying properties, as well as the use of ISO 22301 as criteria to evaluate each aspect of a business continuity management system (BCMS)

  • The course begins with the basics of auditing using ISO standards and the Institute of Internal Auditor’s International (IIA) Professional Practices Framework. Students will learn how to develop an audit work plan beginning with assembling a team, researching applicable requirements, requesting documents for review, and scheduling site surveys and interviews

  • An overview of ISO 22301 is followed by 10 lessons providing clause-by-clause explanations of the standard’s BCMS requirements, auditing techniques, and evidence of conformity. Each lesson includes interactive class activities and hands-on auditing of a hypothetical company using ISO 22301 as criteria. Students compile audit findings during each of these lessons

  • The course wraps up with a hands-on lesson on report writing, including an extended class activity with students organizing findings from all lessons, prioritizing their recommendations, developing an auditor’s opinion on the conformity of the case study BCMS to ISO 22301, and presenting their opinion and recommendations to the instructor
