Professionals in the fields of continuity, crisis, risk, security and emergency response have a chance to get their point of view across and share their reactions to top organisational threats, including extreme weather, cyberattacks, and Covid-19.
The survey offers a chance for professionals to put their points of view across and identify what they feel are the major threats to their organisations. Participants do not need to be certified resilience professionals, but must have some direct involvement in some aspect of continuity, crisis, risk, security or emergency response.

By completing a short survey, co-ordinated by Lyndon Bird, CRJ Advisory Panel member and Chief Knowledge Officer at Disaster Recovery Institute (DRI), specialists in all resilience fields can contribute to the future direction of their profession.
The annual DRI Risk and Resilience Trends Survey results are collated in the Trends and Predictions report and all replies will form a critical component of what will be the DRI Future Vision Committee’s sixth such report.
Identifying top threats to organisations
Bird says: "Each year, these publications discuss the risks and issues faced by the resilience community, and how they may evolve. Industry, governments and the media use these reports to gain key insights into the global factors that are shaping the direction of resilience."
DRI convened the Future Strategic Vision Committee in order to bring together a global community of subject matter experts. It is a global think tank on matters of operational resilience, discipline integration and the future role of resilience professionals. The interdisciplinary group seeks to unite the profession by establishing meaningful and productive links among other professional bodies, higher education, and membership organisations.
