The latest resilience news from around the world

DRI International’s latest Global Risk and Resilience Trends Report is now available, providing a global perspective and comprehensive trends analysis of the resilience profession. The report was developed by DRI International’s Future Vision Committee and is based on survey data.

The Fifth Annual Global Risk and Resilience Trends Report includes a summary of the ‘Top 8 Resilience Trends’, which are as follows:

  1. The consolidation of business continuity, disaster recovery, crisis management, and emergency management has escalated during the past 12 months.
  2. During the course of the year, there has been little progress in involving resilience management professionals in new areas of risk.
  3. Across all regions and almost all sectors, technology risk is seen as the most important of the macro global risks, putting it ahead of economic, social, environment, and political considerations.
  4. The number of respondents who think that senior management understands their role and function has increased.
  5. The Resilience Index scores are generally a little higher than in previous years, particularly on the impact scale.
  6. Regulated firms are much more likely to
    have a resilience program in place than non-regulated firms.
  7. Some 20% of respondents reported that they do not trust their senior management to make risk decisions in a crisis situation.
  8. Resilience professionals in different geographic sectors have different priorities once the fundamental IT issues are covered.
