BS 25999 is the British standard for Business Continuity Management. It is split into two parts:
BS 25999-2 was important, as it was the first standard for Business Continuity that an organization could actually be audited against. A company could thus say it that it was BS 25999 compliant, rather like it might say its quality standards were ISO 9000 compliant.
BS 25999-2 was replaced by International Standard ISO 22301:2012, Societal Security — Business Continuity Management Systems — Requirements.
