Near Misses, Critical Parts of Business Continuity
If everything is working and you have a business continuity plan in place, is there anything left to worry about? Yes!
Near misses that do not result in interruption could still be critical warning signs that your business continuity is still too fragile.
ISO 22301, the international standard for business continuity, specifies that “organizations must determine what to measure and monitor for BC… and take action when necessary to address adverse trends or results before a non-conformity occurs”.
So, how do you set about identifying and acting on near misses, which in a way are non-events, making them even more challenging to spot?
