At the DRJ Spring World Conference in Orlando earlier this year, the BCI 20/20 Think Tank US Group hosted a session titled 'BCI 20/20 - The future of the continuity industry'. The discussion that followed covered a wide range of issues which illustrated the changing resilience landscape that business continuity professionals face today. The outcome of this was a new discussion paper on the role of business continuity professionals in the changing global threat environment.
The notion of a changing threat environment was supported by a high level discussion on the Business Continuity Institute's latest Horizon Scan Report, also at DRJ Spring World, which considered the changing risk landscape and how it is no longer just the traditional threats like natural or man-made disasters that are being disruptive to our organizations. However, knowing the risks an organization faces enables business continuity professionals to focus on what happens next.
One of the conclusions from the paper was that "only a business continuity professional with a strong understanding of the business, its products/services and customer expectations can contribute meaningfully to responding to risks".
