When everyone in the organisation claims their role, their team or their department is the most critical to the survival of the organisation it is essential to introduce a structured, logical and fair method to establish a clear understanding of the impact an incident would have on key products, processes and services.

Completion of the Business Impact Analysis is fundamental to Business Continuity Planning and therefore well worth investing time and effort in to get it right. Not only will the Business Impact Analysis identify your organisation’s priorities when disruptions occur but it will also identify issues and threats which if addressed may actually prevent or reduce the likelihood or impact of such threats.

I use a robust, structured approach which I adapt to suit the organisation I am working with. The results and outputs form the basis of much of the subsequent work and are therefore essential in achieving successful implementation of appropriate Business Continuity strategies, procedures, techniques and solutions.
