PHOENIX, ARIZONA – April 13, 2017 – MHA Consulting, Inc. (MHA), a leader in Business Continuity Planning, announced that its May webinar, Getting the BS out of the Business Impact Analysis, scheduled for May 10, 2017, will feature industry expert Richard Long, Senior Advisory Consultant at MHA Consulting. Richard will be discussing how to conduct a no-nonsense BIA. Join us for a lively discussion on this important topic.

“At MHA, we are dedicated to helping our clients understand the impacts of downtime on their company, and to develop strategies and plans based on that knowledge,” said Richard Long. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to share some advice and practical solutions to conducting an effective BIA.”

Description:  A Business Impact Analysis is, at its heart, a fact-finding mission. In the event of downtime, what would happen to your company? Do the analysis right and you’ll come to a deeper, more realistic understanding of your company’s current state of operations—and pave the way for creating a business recovery strategy that actually works.

In essence, it serves as the foundation of any good continuity strategy. Once you understand which business processes are most time-sensitive to your company, you can then use this information to build an effective strategy that addresses only those areas that need to be recovered and the designated time frame in which to recover them. In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Who should be involved in the BIA process
  • The right questions to ask to ensure a successful execution
  • How to make the process as painless as possible
  • What you should do with the results

Date & Time:  Wednesday, May 10, 2017 – 2 pm EDT / 11 am Arizona / 11 am Pacific PDT
