Business Continuity Management Standard Requirements
- Do we identify maximum allowable downtime for critical business functions, acceptable levels of data loss and backlogged transactions, RTOs, RPOs, recovery of the critical path (i.e., business processes or systems that should receive the highest priority), and the costs associated with downtime? Are the approved thresholds appropriate?
- Does Business Continuity Management take a holistic business-focused view and is it able to handle the consequences of an increasingly global business/ product eco-system in an increasingly regulated environment?
- The nature of disasters has also changed: who could have imagined in 2001 that civilian passenger airplanes would be used as a weapon of war; what potential disasters do you incorporate in BCM?
- Media are interested in knowing and communicating about how firms respond to a crisis. Do you have answers to questions as were they ready for the disaster or they were caught by surprise?
- Assess executive managements involvement and commitment to the plan and resulting programs. Has executive management assigned a qualified plan administrator to promote an effective plan?
- Has specific responsibility been assigned for the execution of business continuity and disaster recovery plans (either within or outside of the information security function)?
- Has the organization established an enterprise-wide business continuity/disaster recovery program that is consistent with FISMA requirements, OMB policy, and applicable NIST guidelines?
- The subject of succession planning in the context of disasters is an unpleasant one: If key managers or employees die in a disaster, who will step up and fulfill their responsibilities?
- Processing time availability-assuming that other clients are also using the same recovery site, how much processing time is the institution entitled to on a particular computer system?
- Do you assess the severity of the impact caused by the disruption on the business; the guiding question is: to what extent will business activities be damaged if the disruption occurs?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role… In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions.
