Why Read This Report

As so-called "100-year floods" and cyberattacks grow more frequent, and as governments, healthcare providers, and businesses become completely dependent on complex technology, business continuity (BC) preparedness becomes a cornerstone of a resilient organization. A resilient company can absorb the impact of any unexpected event without failing to deliver on its brand promise. In this report, the first in a series highlighting the current state of business continuity, Forrester examines the changes in mission and priorities, executive sponsorship, reporting structure, standards adoption, funding, and staffing levels that are under way as the function plays a more prominent role in business success. Risk professionals should use this report to adjust and improve their BC strategy and subsequent people, process, and technology investments.
