Survey Shows Risk Management is a Growing Priority

3 Minute Read

Given current events, it’s not surprising that more and more public and private sector organizations are looking for new ways to mitigate risk. After all, it’s just good business. This trend, as discussed in a recent blog post at SecurityInfoWatch.com, is supported by the results from Vidsys’ fourth annual National Security Survey.

Check out these findings:
• 54 percent of respondents (over 200 IT and physical security executives) indicated risk management is a higher priority for them than it was 12 to 18 months ago

• More than 35 percent of survey respondents said their executive leadership team viewed risk management as critical to their businesses (up from 25% a year ago)

• 26 percent said risk management directly aligns with their overall business strategy (up from only 10% a year ago)

• To help mitigate risk, more than 60 percent of survey respondents said they will acquire and implement new security technologies or physical security information management (PSIM) solutions over the next 12 to 18 months.

Likewise, many organizations will bolster their critical communications capabilities through the use of emergency notification technology. Some may implement an alerting service for the first time; others may seek to replace their current vendor. Either way, emergency communications technology will continue to be a high priority for IT, security and business resilience professionals.

Whether you’re a business continuity planner or a C-level executive, risk management is clearly top of mind.
