The ANSI/ASIS Organizational Resilience Standard is unique to
other preparedness standards in that:
the only preparedness standard that takes an enterprise-wide view of
risk management, enabling an organization to develop a comprehensive
strategy to prevent when possible, prepare for, mitigate, respond
to, and recover from a disruptive incident. This allows seamless
integration with the new ISO 31000 Risk Management standard for a
comprehensive risk management program.
also the only preparedness standard that is 100% compatible with
existing ISO management system standards (such as ISO 9001, ISO
14001, ISO 27001 and ISO 28000), thus enabling a cost-saving
integrated application. By implementing the ASIS Standard,
organizations can satisfy both ISO 28000 and BS 25999 requirements.
light of the recent events in the Gulf, the importance of resilience
cannot be understated," says ASIS President Joseph R. (Bob) Granger,
CPP. "Preparing for, responding to and recovering from a disruption
is not enough; organizations need to be able to assess the potential
for a disruption and minimize the likelihood. They also need to
adapt to an ever-changing environment. This standard provides
organizations with a flexible tool to tailor resilience and
preparedness to meet their business needs. Regardless of a
business's decision to participate in the PS-Prep, it can use the
ASIS Organizational Resilience Standard to better manage its risks."
