August 9, 2012: IBM Business Continuity Index

Informational Update For August 9, 2012

IBM Business Continuity Index

IBM Business Continuity White Paper

Business continuity and resiliency are critical requirements of modern businesses, but they are not always well understood beyond departments with immediate responsibility. By asking key questions and providing a business continuity rating of mature, capable, aware or exposed, the IBM Business Continuity Index establishes a tangible focus for discussions to drive new initiatives. Since its launch in 2011, the interactive questionnaire has been completed by organizations all over the world. This white paper aggregates and analyzes participant data to reveal four marks of maturity, four signs of exposure and the value of a holistic approach to business continuity. The findings reinforce IBM's own focus on the importance of taking a holistic approach to business continuity and resiliency, one that spans all layers of an organization, not just technology and facilities. Download this white paper for practical guidance on improving business continuity for your organization.
