Welcome to the October edition of the Storage magazine eNewsletter: our news items include some interesting research on how the responsibility for Business Continuity is shifting - at long last, some might argue - away from the IT function and into the boardroom. Senior leaders (CEO, CFO, MD or FD) are in charge of BC planning at 25 per cent of UK organisations, up from 21 per cent in 2015. IT remains in charge of BC though at a significant 42% of organisations.

Peter Groucutt of Databarracks, who commissioned the research, comments: “If we look beyond just who is ultimately in charge of the plan to which roles are involved in BC planning, the heavy bias of IT department remains. 40 per cent said IT managers are involved in this process, and 37 per cent said the same for IT directors. CEO involvement is fairly strong at 25 per cent, but only 10 per cent said the CFO is involved. It’s important that a wide range of people – including IT leaders – are involved in writing BC plans. But we’re still not seeing enough buy-in from the C-suite.”

With technology now central to so many aspects of any organisation, business resilience needs to be viewed from as senior a level as is practical - but it appears the move is still too gradual.
