ISO 22301 is the Business Continuity Management System standard. Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) has been developed to protect companies from the risks associated with major downtime which can occur due to unexpected operational disruptions o and natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods etc.

Business Impact Analysis is primarily here to give you an idea about the timing of your recovery (Maximum Acceptable Outage/Recovery Time Objective) and the timing of your backup (Recovery Point Objective/Maximum Data Loss), since resumption is crucial – the difference of a couple of hours could mean life or death for certain companies. For example, if you are a financial institution, business operations recovery time of 4 hours could mean you will probably survive a disruption, whereas business operations recovery time of 12 hours is unacceptable for certain systems/activities in a bank and lead to millions of dollars in loss data transactions. The operational disruption of a full day would probably mean the bank would never be able to open its doors again.
