BIA- New Methodology to Define Critical Activities, MTPD &RTO's

Presented by

Charlie Maclean-Bristol, MBCI

About this talk

Many business continuity parishioners struggle with their BIA making sure it is aligned to the needs to the business, making sure that it is objective and that meets all the requirements of the relevant business continuity standards they are working to. To often BIAs contain lots of information but it doesn’t really help in the planning process, parts of the organisation demand that they are recovered within 2-3 hours and they want their IT applications NOW, when logic says they can wait for 24 hours or more and nobody can agree on the list of critical activities across the organisation. Charlie believes that a robust list of critical activates each with an agreed RTO (recovery time objective) is the cornerstone of developing business continuity within an organisation. During the webinar Charlie will explain the relevant terms such as RTO and will give a simple and robust methodology for developing consistency, relevance and ensure that the results of the BIA are aligned to the requirements of the organisation. This methodology has be used for large and small organisations and by a number of organisations as part of their BS25999 certification.
