          Document Title
          Business Continuity Plan
          Risk Assessment




Purpose

The Business Impact Analysis (BIA) is a fundamental part of the first phase of business
continuity planning. It enables the organization to identify the time critical activities, and
resources needed to support its key products and services, understand the threats to
them and choose appropriate risk treatments.

Objectives

The BIA is a defined and documented method for determining the impact of a
disruption over a period of time on the activities that support the organisation’s key
products and services. It will:

      identify activities that support its key products and services;

      identify impacts resulting from the disruption to these activities, and determine
       how these vary over time;

      establish the maximum tolerable period of disruption for each activity by
       identifying:
          o the maximum time period after the start of a disruption within
          o which each activity needs to be resumed;
          o the minimum level at which each activity needs to be
          o performed upon resumption; and
          o the length of time within which normal levels of operation need to be
               resumed;

      categorize its activities according to their priority for recovery and identify its
       critical activities;

      identify all dependencies relevant to the critical activities, including suppliers and
       outsource partners;
   identify suppliers and outsource partners on whom critical activities depend and
    determine what BCM arrangements are in place for the relevant products and
    services they provide;

   set recovery time objectives for the resumption of critical activities within their
    maximum tolerable period of disruption; and

   estimate the resources that each critical activity will require for resumption.
                          Business Impact Analysis
What are the key activities of your service? List the effect of a disruption to the activity
for the differing time periods as well as the resource requirements for recovery. You may
find that a previously underestimated activity has many interdependencies that mean it is
a ‘critical’ function.
