Key findings of the study included:
- The majority of organizations that took part had clearly adopted the principles of good practice in business continuity management as defined by the Business Continuity Institute’s Good Practice Guide.
- Testing and exercising to validate business continuity strategies was widely adopted.
- Two-thirds of respondents have at least one full-time employee working in a business continuity role.
- Over 65 percent of organizations confirmed that the Board, CEO or equivalent organizational leader have overall leadership of business continuity management.
