Introduction What is the power of stakeholders in the continuous operation of an information system? Following are the results of a web-based survey to benchmark stakeholders in IS continuity. The survey was conducted by the Pontikes Center for Management of Information, College of Business and Administration, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Responses were solicited by e-mails to 210 executives who had registered their address when they visited the Disaster Recovery Journal home page. A total of 50 people interested in IS continuity completed the survey, resulting in 40 usable responses. The profile of these respondents is summarized in Table 1. The questionnaire used is at the Pontikes Center web site http://www.pontikes.siu.edu/ .
