Forrester Surveys

DRJ has teamed with Forrester Research to produce a number of market studies in business continuity and disaster recovery. Each survey contains data for company comparison and benchmarking. The aim is to promote research and publication of best practices and recommendations for the industry. The annual surveys can be accessed via this page. The data within can be used for business continuity purposes as long as due credit is given to DRJ and Forrester Research.

Cover Thumbnail Forrester Research and the Disaster Recovery Journal have partnered to field a number of market studies in business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) in order to gather data for company comparison and benchmarking, to guide research, and for the publication of best practices and recommendations for the industry. This is the seventh annual joint survey. This year’s study focused on the role of crisis communication in business continuity and the relationship of business continuity to risk management. We also fielded many of the same questions in 2009. That first study provided us with a baseline for the interplay of risk management, BC and crisis communication that we can now compare to the 2012 study to see trending across time.
