Iron Mountain sponsors 2023 research exploring the changing perceptions of risk management

Every year, we conduct research and explore topics relevant to managing data, records, and information. This helps strengthen our conversations with our customers and share our findings with the larger community of subject matter experts through our education webinar series.

In this year’s research sponsored by Iron Mountain, Economist Impact (the research arm of The Economist) provides a strong message about the heightened attention given to risk over the past three years from more than 650 executives around the world. According to the research, 90% of executives say they are now, more than ever, concerned about the impact that risks associated with technology, cybersecurity, sustainability, data management, physical workspaces, and employee well-being can have on their reputation.

The study also found that 77% of respondents agree that risk management spans the entire organization, yet over half admit that their organization needs to improve cross-functional collaboration and only 46% have invested in the creation of enterprise-wide risk management teams.

Which begs the question: How risk aware is your organization? Learn how everyone in your organization has a role to play when it comes to managing risk and strengthening resilience via our resource center:
