Stock quotes in this article: RHI

In light of a range of factors such as weather-related events, natural disasters and cyber-attacks, companies have placed added emphasis on preparedness to protect against business disruptions. In the Ensuring Continuity category, three areas ranked as top priorities. "Business continuity management and disaster recovery program testing;" "developing and maintaining IT disaster recovery plans;" and "ensuring business alignment" all ranked highest in the category with ratings of 6.2.

CIOs and IT professionals completing Protiviti's survey indicated that there will be greater priority placed on strategic integration into the broader enterprise. In the Defining IT Governance and Strategy category, issues including "key performance indicators (KPIs) and monitoring IT costs and benefits," as well as "integration/alignment of IT planning and business strategy" ranked among the highest priorities with a 6.5 rating.

More than half of the participants work in publicly traded companies and represent virtually all industry sectors, with others working across a variety of private, government and not-for-profit organizations.
