Which of the following is the BEST method for determining the criticality of each application system
in the production environment?
interview the application programmers.
Perform a gap analysis.
Review the most recent application audits.
Perform a business impact analysis.
A business impact analysis will give the impact of the loss of each application. Interviews with the
application programmers will provide limited information related to the criticality of the systems. A
gap analysis is only relevant to systems development and project management. The audits may
not contain the required information or may not have been done recently.
