BCMS Assessment Service
How is your 'continuous improvement' drive working?
Team Caridon conducts ISO22301 Assessments to assist our clients in determining the maturity of their Management Systems for Business Continuity. By applying our unique dashboard methodology we will review the current state of BCM within the organisation and compare this to the requirements of ISO and Good Practice. The gap analysis can then be reviewed by management to set the target maturity required and the define a programme of activities to achieve that maturity level.

ISO 22301 in Africa
Since we launched the ISO22301 certification courses in Africa in 2013 -just over two years ago we have seen a dramatic rise in interest in the ISO standard. thus far some 60 professionals have graduated, nearly all at the Lead Implementer or Lead Auditor level.delegates have attended our courses from across Africa.
The feedback and our experiences while training has reaffirmed our belief that the learning structure and material is of immense practical value.
So much so that most delegates have turned their course files into living procedures and project planning manuals. It has brought clarity to the framework and intent of the ISO standard and made it easy for implementers and auditors alike to relate the subject matter to their own organisations and professional disciplines.
Nothing is more rewarding for our trainers than to watch our delegates with little knowledge of BCM ride the fast track to being effective in their new roles. The enthusiasm that these programmes generate amongst the participants has resulted in a Caridon PECB graduates social media circle where ideas methods tools and techniques are discussed and shared.
More from ISO and the PECB -ISO29100 Privacy Framework Implementation
Privacy legislation in the form of POPI will soon be upon us! Once again, PECB have risen to the challenge and launched the 5-day ISO 29100 Lead Implementer training course. Team Caridon have been actively involved in this and can now offer this training here in South Africa. Two of our community are Certified in this standard, one of whom is also a certified PECB trainer.
For those who aren't aware, of ISO29100, it is the global standard to support the privacy of Personally Identifiable Information -(PII). The training explains personal privacy in the context of the GAPP (Generally Accepted Privacy Principles) and Information Security. In the words of the PECB:
"This five-day intensive course enables participants to develop the necessary expertise to support an organization in implementing and managing a Privacy Framework based on ISO 29100.
Participants will gain a thorough understanding of how to design, build and lead organizations' privacy programs in all processes of ICT systems and services, through the use of best practices.
The training provides a privacy framework which specifies a common privacy terminology, defines the actors and their roles in processing personally identifiable information (PII), describes privacy safeguarding considerations and provides references to known privacy principles for information technology."
