Business Impact Analysis

Business Impact Analysis aims to determine the damage which arises if the company’s processes stop or the company’s data assets are damaged in any way. We can look to understand how damage occurs by examining all the IT resources comprehensively to ensure the integrity of the processes and data.

Challenges facing Business Impact Analysis

  • to process variable quality data originating from diverse sources
  • to develop data structures which will allow damage resulting from both loss of processes and harm to data assets to be calculated
  • to provide a basis upon which all further analysis (facility, security, human risk) may be conducted
