The 10th annual study, which aggregates data from participants from more than 30 countries, will analyze participants’ business continuity planning management initiatives, ranging from program resiliency and reporting structures to budgeting, standards and maturity of the program. The BC Management International Benchmarking Advisory Board analyzes the data.
Kieran Stack, managing director with Aon Global Risk Consulting, said, “More than ever, businesses must be prepared to respond to an emergency, crisis or disaster and have strategies in place that enable them to recover from their impact. Business continuity management is a strategic approach that, when implemented effectively, enables organizations to better mitigate their exposures and ultimately drive operational resiliency in the organization. It is Aon’s goal to provide market driven insights to help our clients optimize their resiliency planning. This study is vital to achieving that as it arms us and our clients with the knowledge on how to improve BCM maturity and preparedness.”
