Business Continuity Study in Portugal


The Business Continuity Study in Portugal presents a detailed analysis on the risks related to disruptive events and the mechanisms of resilience implemented in organizations representing key sectors for the Portuguese economy.

We live in a digital world, new technologies open up new horizons but also bring new risks to Organizations, so it's no wonder that Cybersecurity incidents and the failure of Information Technology are at the top of the list of concerns of Business Continuity managers, far away from other risk events such as the failure of critical suppliers of the value chain, utility failures or fires, terrorism and natural disasters.

The majority of the organizations that participated in the study have some level of resilience, that is, implemented preventive controls to reduce exposure to risks relevant to their activity and mechanisms to recover their critical functions following a disruptive incident, which allows us to conclude that Business Continuity is already rooted in its culture.

The study examines three key aspects to ensuring organizational resilience to risks related to disruptive events: leadership and commitment from top management to business continuity at the corporate level and the most revealing aspects of business continuity management and IT services continuity management in accordance with international standards.

KPMG professionals are committed to contributing to the resilience of the Portuguese companies and are at your disposal to discuss the challenges of Business Continuity in your Organization.
