Unplanned IT and telecoms outage, cyber attack and data breach – these were the three main threats to organisations according to the Business Continuity Institute's Horizon Scan 2014 report, but other threats are on the rise such as adverse weather, human illness and transport network disruption. Of course it varies depending on what sector you’re in, where you're geographically located and how big your organization is.
The annual Horizon Scan report, sponsored by BSI, is one of the main pieces of research conducted by the Institute as it provides an insight that those working in the profession can use to inform their own business continuity programme. The Horizon Scan report continues to receive great feedback from those who use it, but it only provides value if people take the time to complete the survey.
The BCI is now asking business continuity professionals and those working in the wider field of organizational resilience to take just a few minutes to complete the Horizon Scan 2015 survey and share your thoughts on what you think the biggest threats are that organizations face.
