TDB Announced “Corporate Awareness Survey on Business Continuity Plan (BCP) (2019)” Companies that intend to formulate BCP, tend to have high intention to formulate BCP in areas where major earthquakes are not reached ………………………………………………………………………………………… Teikoku Databank conducted a survey on the company’s view on the Business Continuity Plan (BCP). This survey was conducted along with the TDB Economic Trend Survey May 2019 survey. ※ The survey period is May 20-31, 2019. The survey target is 23,169 companies nationwide, and 9,555 valid reply companies (41.2% response rate). The survey on the business continuity plan (BCP) has been conducted every year since June 2016, and this is the fourth time << Survey result (abstract) 1. In the formulation of the Business Continuity Plan (BCP), only 15.0% (up 0.3 points from the previous year) of the companies that answered "develop". In addition, even with “intention to formulate” (“to formulate,” “currently formulating,” “summary of formulating”), it is less than half at 45.5%, and the fact that the formulation of BCP has not progressed It became a relief 2. Of the BCP's companies with “intention to formulate”, among the risks assumed to make it difficult to continue business, “natural disasters” (72.5%) such as earthquakes, floods and eruptions are the highest, followed by "Failure of equipment" (40.9%), followed. In terms of implementation and consideration for business interruption risk, "Establishment of means to confirm safety of employees" (72.2%), "Back up of information system" (61.5%), "Emergency command / command system Construction (47.2%) ranked high 3. With regard to the effects of BCP formulation, among companies that have already formulated it, "Employee awareness of risk has improved" is top with 59.3%. Following this, "formalization and manualization of business progressed" (35.4%) and "the priority of business became clear" (32.9%) continued 4. The reason for not formulating the BCP is the highest in “the lack of skills and know-how necessary for formulating” (43.9%). Then, "we can not secure human resources to devise" (33.7%), "it is difficult to make plan that we can use by document making practical use" (27.9%) followed 5. Although BCP formulation is effective for raising awareness of employees' risks and improving their operations in their own company, the barrier seems to be still high due to lack of know-how and manpower. Governments and government agencies will need to support further efforts to promote corporate formulation
