Establishing a Sound Foundation for the BIA

January 8, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Establishing a Sound Foundation for the Business Impact Analysis

Planning your BIA is critical to the success of the project. Unfortunately, we see a lack of planning in BIAs today. Most practitioners are spending little or no time up front in determining the scope, objectives, stakeholders, data analysis, tools, and other details of their BIAs. You should have a solid understanding of these matters BEFORE you start communicating with your subject matter experts.

If you’re not already well-versed in the components of a BIA, this webinar series is for you. In part three of the series, Establishing a Sound Foundation for the BIA, speaker Michael Herrera will guide you through conducting a well-organized and thorough BIA.

In this webinar, we will address:

  • Information to Capture
    • Business Unit Overview
    • Business Functions
    • Systems/Applications
    • Effects of Disruption Over Time
  • Impact Categories
    • Quantitative
    • Qualitative
  • Identify Dependencies
  • Identify Vital Records
  • Regulatory, Legal or Service Level Impacts
  • Manual Workarounds
  • Measuring Impacts over Time
  • RTO/RPO Categories
