This blog brings to an end my review of BCI predictions for 2013 – mainly because as we have now reached February, they are beginning to look more like news comment than forecasts. Predictions 7 through 10 were about business failures, sustainability, increased outsourcing problems and social media respectively.

Firstly we predicted that “ISO 22301 will start to take off, with certificates issued in more than one country” and secondly, that regulators will begin to understand that resilience will not be improved just by more regulation.

Although Business Continuity Management has not been on the boardroom agenda of many organizations in the Middle East, it has still enjoyed a significant presence in the region. It is fact that Business Continuity is emerging as a very important area both for the government and private sector, which is confirmed by the recent release of the UAE BCM Standard.

There has been some puzzled faces questioning our BC prediction number 4 – “Contingency Planning will become fashionable again as a part of a broader understanding of Business Continuity which includes Continuity Capability and Crisis Response”.

As we head towards Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW), the BCI’s annual global awareness raising campaign for business continuity (BC), it makes sense to begin with a simple question: What is business continuity? As a discipline, business continuity can seem like a complicated subject, but actually when we strip it back to its bare essentials, we discover it really is very straightforward.

Continuing our review of our predictions for 2013, most people believe that IT will still dominate BC thinking but will be refreshed under the issues raised by cyber threat, big data, cloud and mobility services and social media. Worries about a myriad of cyber fears will start to move on from its hype phase to a more sophisticated understanding of the main issues, threats and vulnerabilities.

How can you ensure that your BCM programme and resources are allocated in a way proportionate to the current and potential threats that the company is and will be facing? That’s a real question one of our members faced last year from her senior management team.

In today’s world of economic, social and political uncertainty, organizations are confronted with an ever-increasing range of risks to deal with. But there are risks we can see and then there are those we can’t. Now more than ever, organizations are looking for a solution to help them manage both types of risk. That solution is Business Continuity (BC).

Some BC practitioners have argued that Risk Management techniques provide a tried and tested approach to dealing with conventional threats, but have limited effectiveness in identifying or evaluating rare but potentially catastrophic issues. There has even been a host of terms that have entered our common lexicon simply to try and define these types of high impact situations.

At the start of the year it is always tempting to forward and make some predictions. Like New Year resolutions, however, they are generally much modified as soon as they come into contact with reality. Nevertheless at the BCI we asked our experts what they thought might be important Business Continuity trends in 2013 and got some interesting responses.

As Business Continuity has grown in significance, so has the desire to measure it effectiveness. Hence the internal audit function, who believe themselves to be the “eyes and ears” of the Board, have an increasingly important role to play. To do this, however, they need to understand the process they are auditing and the rationale for the decisions that they might be evaluating. This is not easy.
