Business continuity in 2013: interim survey results

Continuity Central is currently conducting a survey to determine what changes and trends we can expect to see in the business continuity profession during 2013. A full report will be published once the survey closes but the results so far indicate some interesting trends:

Change on the horizon
84 percent of respondents expect that their organization will make changes in the way it manages business continuity during 2013. 51 percent expect that small changes will be made, while 33 percent anticipate large changes.

Optimistic outlook for business continuity spending
Only 21 percent of respondents expect that business continuity spending in their organization will be lower in 2013 than it was in 2012. 44 percent expect that 2013 spending will be the same as 2012; while 27 percent expect that business continuity spending will be higher in 2013 and 8 percent expect spending to be much higher.

Business continuity teams more secure than in previous years
Whereas previous years have seen business continuity teams shrinking, 2013 looks like being a more stable year for many. 72 percent of respondents say that they expect their organization’s business continuity team to stay the same size in 2013. 19 percent expect their BC team to grow and only 9 percent say that it will probably reduce.
