The Business Impact Analysis (BIA) has been a staple of business continuity (BC) for decades. In that time, the BIA has grown, expanded, and become rather nebulous in its scope, objectives, and value. By exploring both its initial purpose and current implementation, we can conclude that early benefits gained from the BIA no longer outweigh the disadvantages, and that practitioners ought to eliminate the use of the BIA as much and as soon as feasible.
Join David Lindstedt, founder of Readiness Analytics, an organization focused on providing meaningful metrics for preparedness practitioners, at the Continuity Insights 2017 New York Conference as he presents “Away With the BIA.”
Lindstedt is the creator of the RPC Model of Organizational Recoverability, author of “Measuring Preparedness and Predicting Recoverability,” and co-writer of the Adaptive BC Manifesto. He has published in international journals and presented at international conferences. He taught for Norwich University’s Master of Science in Business Continuity Management and currently serves on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Business Continuity & Emergency Planning. Lindstedt also serves as Director of Program Management with the Office of Distance Education and eLearning at The Ohio State University, inspiring innovative instruction through emerging technologies.
