Roughly half of businesses in the UK (46%) are not confident their business continuity plans are up to date, according to fresh reports from Databarracks.
Polling businesses ahead of the Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW), the report says that organisations are being regularly exposed to potential business disruptions because of poor BC management. Databarracks’ managing director Peter Groucutt says organisations should be investing in resilience, but “this is not happening across half of UK organisations”.
He believes it is critical for organisations to tweak and test their BC plans on regular basis. A three-year old plan won’t be of much help, as it may refer to employees that retired or left the company in the meantime.
