- Business impact analysis and risk assessment are two important steps in a business continuity plan. A BIA often takes place prior to a risk assessment. How do we do this?
- Identify who your main stakeholders are internally and externally. Eg, who are your audience/who do you provide content for/who do you provide technical support for etc?
- During the risk assessment phase, the BIA findings may be examined against various hazard scenarios, and potential disruptions may be prioritized based on the hazard?
- Think about the information/data that you require to resume activities at the agreed level ie could you manage if you lost all IT data from the last 24 hours/7 days?
- If your application or system resides in a Data Center, data is backed up every 24 hours. Do you have any special needs that require more frequent backups?
- What was the longest time your organization was unable to function due to the loss or interruption of its usual I/S support in the last 5 years?
- In the event a application or system is unavailable due to a major outage, how long are downtime procedures viable before major impacts occur?
