Forrester Study Reveals Businesses Are Insufficiently Prepared to Manage Enterprise Risks

NEW YORK, March 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Dataminr, one of the world’s leading AI companies, today released a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise risk management (ERM) at midsize to large enterprises across industries in the North America, Europe, and APAC regions.
Forrester surveyed 500 risk leaders to inform the commissioned study titled Constant Disruption Is The New Status Quo, and found that organizations encounter significant organizational, strategic, and technological barriers on their way to implementing an effective ERM strategy. The study also found that nearly 70% of respondents said their organizations experienced at least two separate critical risk events in the past year, while over 40% experienced at least three, and nearly 20% suffered six or more incidents.
“Following the unprecedented events of the past three years, this research illustrates that now, more than ever, it is crucial for businesses to have a system in place to discover and manage major physical and cyber risk events,” said Jason Edelboim, President and COO of Dataminr. “These findings have been incredibly valuable to help demonstrate the utility of Dataminr’s real-time alerts—ultimately giving clients an earlier line of sight into high-impact events and emerging risks that could impact their organizations.”
The survey found that 70% of respondents believed that optimized, real-time alerting would have helped them significantly or totally reduced the harm of the most serious or disruptive events their organization faced last year. At this time, 56% of respondents indicated they don’t have real-time alerting solutions in place today, but 62% plan to implement or expand their use of such tools, and 54% plan to increase investment over the next 12 months.
In the research, Forrester Consulting identified four key findings:
In addition to the above key takeaways, the survey also found that only 18% of respondents reported that their current ERM strategies are effective or very effective across all five capabilities surveyed, including identifying, evaluating, monitoring, responding to, and communicating about risk.
Forrester completed the study in Q3 2022. Participants were decision makers in physical security and security operations, cyber/information security, business continuity, human resources and employee experience, corporate communications, and supply chain roles. Questions focused on how organizations navigate risk strategies, technologies and workflows.
