Business Impact Analysis


A business impact analysis (BIA) is an organized investigation into potential vulnerabilities and crises, and the development of plans to minimize risks and/or to recover. At the end of an impact analysis, an impact analysis report is produced, outlining findings and plans. If necessary, these plans will prompt preventative action to minimize risk and ensure the continuance of the enterprise.
