January 22, 2008 - SteelEye Technology, Inc. released a preview of results from its annual "SteelEye Technology Business Continuity Index," a survey examining adoption levels, best practices and attitudes regarding business continuity among IT professionals and C-level executives.

Findings show that top executives feel threats to business continuity are increasing, and as a result, business leaders are placing an operational priority on assuring business continuity.

More than half of CEOs saw outages to key technology-enabled services that extended longer than 24 hours as potentially fatal to their organizations, pointing at financial systems and customer support as most critical. Of the C-level executives surveyed, 87 percent reported they felt the average IT organization faces the same or more threats to business continuity than it did a year previous.
