For several years, two of the greatest concerns for business continuity professionals have been cyber attacks and data breaches. In fact, the latest Horizon Scan Report, published by the Business Continuity Institute, showed that 85% and 80% of business continuity professionals respectively expressed concern about the prospect of these threats materializing.
So when asked at the end of Business Continuity Awareness Week 2016 what the theme should be for BCAW2017, the overwhelming response was cyber resilience. As the world becomes more and more digital, so do the threats that it faces.

So what will you do to raise awareness of business continuity and the importance of cyber resilience?
