  2. 2. Business Continuity Management Business Impact Analysis Procedures Page 1 1. Introduction 1.1 Purpose This document describes the process of filling in the Business Impact Analysis (BIA), which is a requirement of the XXXX Bank to ensure adequate Business Continuity Management. Business Continuity is the responsibility of all staff; however, the business unit heads in each location are to be held responsible, with the Country Executive Officer (CEO) to be held accountable. This document has been written to assist the completion of BIA’s within the locations and business units/ departments. Performing a BIA is needed to establish exactly what risks the Bank is exposed to. This gives a measurable quantity rather than a feeling to the risk. The completion of a questionnaire forms the basis of the information on which analysis takes place. The BIA should be reviewed and updated every year. All business departments/ units at a senior team level, including service departments and back office functions should complete this questionnaire. Technology and Property Services have a major role and should not be excluded from seeing themselves as business units providing service across the Bank. In addition to the questionnaire, Technology and Property Services also need to review the results from all business lines to give potential strategies to the CEO. 1.2 Scope The scope of this document is: • To describe the completion of the accompanying BIA questionnaire document; • To describe the review required by the Technology department with respect to the IT systems; • To describe the review required by the Property Services department for recovery considerations; • To describe for the presentation of findings and recovery strategy for the unit/ department from the output of the questionnaire. The document can be used to update BIA’s or could be used if there is little or no documentation currently in place; however, it should be pointed out that the questionnaire will have to be revisited every year thereafter and the results re-analysed. The resulting data will allow a recovery strategy to be produced in the event of an incident. The BIA questionnaire will not put in place any solutions, but provides the base documentation for a solution to be developed. 1.3 Background This document is required to ensure a consistent approach, and to assist CEO’s in completing this mandatory exercise. It is acknowledged that further assistance in completing the BIA questionnaire may be required and this is available from your local BCM contact. Your BCM Team can be reached by sending an email to: XXX@XXX.com. This document is a partial preview.

Business Continuity Management Business Impact Analysis Procedures Page 4 • C4 – Up to 1 week • C5 – Up to 2 weeks • C6 – Up to 1 month 2.6.4 Staffing Requirements for Recovery Using the high level names for your processes detailed earlier, you will need to identify staff numbers that would be able to support an ‘emergency’ level of service. You may need to increase staff numbers after the first week, or reduce them as other offices take control of certain functions. Also complete the total number of staff who will require remote dial in. This is important as more and more staff are currently laptop users and numbers are required by IT to ensure there are adequate slots on the appropriate servers to accommodate dial-up users. 2.6.5 Specialised office equipment & vital records at DR site A recovery position assumes a desk, chair, and phone, desktop and basic printing facilities. If Units/ Departments have additional and specialist equipment requiring recovery at the DR site, this should be detailed in this section. A ‘vital record’ is something that may be on your local PC, on paper or elsewhere that will require recovery at the DR site. As good practice, all units/ departments should electronically document all their business processes and save these on the network drives. These can then be recovered at the DR site by technology. 2.7 Other Information This free format area allows for the detailing of any pertinent information the unit or department feels is relevant.
