The PRIMARY purpose of a business impact analysis (BIA) is to:
provide a plan for resuming operations after a disaster.
identify the events that could impact the continuity of an organization’s operations.
publicize the commitment of the organization to physical and logical security.
provide the framework for an effective disaster recovery plan.
A business impact analysis (BIA) is one of the key steps in the development of a business continuity
plan (BCP). A BIA will identify the diverse events that could impact the continuity of the operations
of an organization.
