The non-compliance analysis is an optional activity that is carried out before the assessment itself. We will look closely at your existing business continuity management activities and compare them with the requirements of ISO 28000. This is a cost-effective way to check if there are areas to be improved before a formal assessment is made.

2. Formal assessment

A formal assessment is a two-step process. At first, the consultant will review the readiness of your organization for the assessment, checking the necessary procedures of ISO 28000 and the control methods developed here. Details of our analyses will be shared with you and in case of discrepancies, you will be able to solve them. In the case when all requirements are met, it switches to the assessment of the level of implementation of procedures and control within the organization, according to the requirements of ISO 28000 certification.
