Global study examines keys to success for business continuity management

During May-July, Assurance Software and ClearView conducted the inaugural Business Continuity Benchmark Study, promoted in collaboration with the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRII), the Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP) and Continuity Central. 1,123 business continuity leaders, practitioners and executive sponsors around the globe participated in the research.

Participants provided insights into their priorities, objectives and challenges, in addition to business continuity programme maturity, sources of confidence, RoI measures and technologies used. The published report examines the key findings of the study and identifies Best-in-Class organisational attributes that are most highly correlated with business continuity programme success.

“This report is a shining example of our commitment to leading innovation in business continuity,” said Craig Potts, CEO of Assurance Software. “In the inaugural Business Continuity Benchmark Study, our researchers exposed a variety of interesting findings, some anticipated and others more surprising. We’re proud to share this with the industry at large to use as an aid to both individual and collective efforts in continuous improvement.”
