STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 974 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 improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 974 standard requirements:

  1. The Business Impact analysis is performed as a process-based methodology. The goal is to identify the most important processes that are critical for survival. The problem with such a methodology is the time and resources needed for larger corporations because of their immense business complexity. Obviously, a thorough analysis of each process and all assets would provide a robust foundation for when performing pre-cautionary measures in order to protect the processes and the assets. Still, it would require a large amount of time and resources, and ultimately it is money companies want to save. Why spend money on pre-cautionary measures if they cost more to implement than the actual potential damage or disruptive event threatening the business?

  2. A business plan for the future rests on a thorough understanding of where you are now as an organization. Carrying out a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) or a PESTEL analysis (Political, Economic, Social-cultural, Technological, Environmental and Legal) are useful tools to help you do this. Consider any strength you can build upon and any weaknesses you need to address. What external influences are impacting upon your organization (changes in the law, government policy, users)?

  3. You need to decide how you rate priorities in your organization and what each category means. This will be different for all organizations. You might choose to have High Medium Low or a numbering system e.g. 1-4. Priority in the BIA sense means: in the event of a disruption, which services need to be prioritised for recovery and which could wait?

  4. You now need to identify who you depend upon to deliver your service functions (dependencies) and also who relies on your function being delivered successfully (dependents). This enables contingency arrangements to be set up as appropriate e.g. who needs to be informed if the functions are not available?
