  13. 13. Key takeaways • Survey results affirm the mounting concern over cyber threats which negatively impact a firm’s revenues and reputation. • The data suggests a growing maturity of ISO 22301 as a framework for BCM implementation. Nonetheless, there are still challenges in the transition from alignment to certification. • BCM practitioners must participate more in strategic planning for organisational resilience at top level. Utilising horizon scanning and trend analysis results may provide opportunities to engage with top management.
