Top Threats Facing Organisations
Monday, 23 January 2012 12:24

A recent survey from the Business Continuity Institute has revealed that the top three threats facing organisations worldwide arise from IT, telecom and internet dependencies, which can result in far reaching reputational and compliance consequences.

In the study 458 organisations were asked to use their own risk assessment methods and rate their level of concern against 28 identified threats. The results indicated that the top three threats are:

Unplanned IT and telecom outages (74%)

Data breach i.e. loss or theft of confidential information (68%)

Cyber attack i.e. malware and denial of service (65%)

The survey acknowledged that organisations need to adopt a comprehensive approach to combat these threats and that BCM provides the link between the organisation's objective, the risks that it agrees to take, and the measures needed to manage the resulting vulnerabilities.


EPS Client's Testimonials

EPS was particularly impressive in quickly grasping the nature and complexity of our complex and geographically dispersed structure and processes. They guided us skilfully and sensitively through to the completion of our BCP. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending EPS.
