Business Continuity Assessment, Design & Impact Analysis

Business Continuity Assessment and Design

Traditional methods of business continuity planning are not adequately meeting the needs of the increasingly complex challenges of today. Adaptive business continuity is moving away from checking a box towards a proactive approach to limit any unexpected interruption of service.

There is a growing need to be proactive instead of reactive to the increasing threats that are undermining business operations. Assessing and revamping of a business continuity program ensures that organizations are prepared when an incident causes potential disruption.

Business Impact Analysis (BIA)

Inadvertent human error. Hardware failure. Loss of power. Cyber-attacks and malware. Businesses experience data loss for a variety of reasons, many of them unexpected. Whether it's something as simple as an employee opening an infected email or a natural disaster such as a major hurricane, it's essential to have plans in place to minimize the length and the resulting impact of any disruption. Business impact analysis is a component of business continuity planning that predicts the potential impact of a disruption of services within a business and gathers information needed to develop recovery strategies.

Business Continuity Plan (BCP)

A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is the process of creating a system of prevention and recovery in the event of a significant disruption, whether caused by a flood, fire, or any other disaster. The BCP is developed in advance and involves input from company executives and key personnel.

Many BCPs use decision trees to help employees become familiar with a variety of potential disasters that could trigger a business continuity event and what actions need to be taken for every process and function that could be adversely affected.
