The latest business continuity news from around the world

New RIMS report highlights the benefits of business continuity management

RIMS has released a new Executive Report entitled ‘Ties that Bind: Business Continuity Management, Resilience and Geopolitical Risk’. The report highlights the value of proactive business continuity management systems and its effectiveness in addressing emerging risks, including geopolitical risk.

Business continuity management provides an opportunity for resilient organizations to help safeguard both economic factors and societal responsibilities says the report.

“Business continuity management can and should extend beyond the organization’s finances and operations,” said Elsa Goutveniger, the report’s author. “An effective plan can improve productivity, reliability and enhance competitiveness and, perhaps most importantly, strengthen its reputation among its consumers, key stakeholders and surrounding community.”

Ties That Bind: Business Continuity Management, Resilience and Geopolitical Risk is available in the RIMS Risk Knowledge library at The report is available to RIMS members-only for the first 60 days and then will be available after registration.
