Impactful Analysis for Speedy Recovery

The starting point to building recovery plans is to ‘understand the business’ and to prioritise process recovery. This is achieved by Business Impact Analysis (BIA) Module.

Typically, BIA should identify all critical business functions, qualify and/or quantify losses as a result of such interruptions, determine the tolerable downtime and minimum resources needed to recover the critical business functions.

  • Compares IT response to Business requirement(s)
    • Gap Analysis
  • Sets Baseline for Recovery Program decisions
