It covers the ISO 22300 family of standards as well as some documents in the ISO 28000 family of standards in the field of

Norma McCormick (Canada), the Convenor of WG 1, explains:

"ISO/TC 292 has taken are resolution  stating that all standards developed by the committee shall include a normative reference to ISO 22300. This ensures that we use a consistent language in our committee as well as in all our documents.

We have also established a process for maintaining ISO 22300 on an on-going basis. By posting all terms and definitions to ISO’s the Online Browsing Platform (OBP) and providing a link to the OBP within each TC 292 standard, the users of each standard are assured that definitions are always current and correct."

Working Group 1 aims to encourage a mutual and consistent understanding and use of uniform terms and definitions in processes and frameworks in the field of security and resilience. Therefore, ISO 22300 is intended to be the reference-standard for terms and definitions used and created within the standards of ISO/TC 292.
