Featuring 638 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Business Impact Analysis BIA improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 638 standard requirements:

  1. Recovery Point Objective: What is the age of the files that must be recovered from backup storage for normal operations to resume How frequently are your backups performed?

  2. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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?

  5. 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?

  6. 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?

  7. 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?

  8. In the event a application or system is unavailable due to a major outage, how long are downtime procedures viable before major impacts occur?

  9. Which products/services if lost would create the greatest uncertainty in the business leading to staff leaving for more secure work?

  10. Which of your products/services are competing in a highly competitive market and a loss to competitors would impact significantly?
