Business Impact Analysis: The Cornerstone of Healthcare Resilience

If you’ve ever created a “checkbox” disaster recovery or business continuity plan because you had to get it done and didn’t have time to do it right, you’re not alone. Even after a global pandemic and headline after headline about cyberattacks and natural disasters shutting down and disrupting patient care, until the alarms ring in your hospital, health system, or practice, it’s just too easy to believe it won’t happen to you.  

But they will happen to you. At some point, there will be a disruption, and the effort you put into your incident response, disaster recovery, and business continuity plans now will minimize the impact and downtime or add to the confusion during the response and delay the recovery. The problem with most response, recovery, and business continuity plans is that they don’t account for business objectives, and they don’t make the connection between the business processes and the IT structure they’re dependent on.  

Before you create your next contingency plan or dust off and update an existing one, you should start with business impact analysis (BIA). In this webinar, Mike Vida, Clearwater’s Manager of Cyber Resilience Strategic Advisors, will show you:   

    1. Why a BIA often serves as a lightbulb moment for your internal teams, connecting your IT structures and the business objectives of the rest of the organization.  
    1. How a BIA informs your response, recovery, and business continuity plans so that when the time comes, you know where to go first, what’s most critical to get up and running, and how each system and process will affect the rest of the organization. 
    1. How a BIA works, who should be involved, how the process unfolds, and how to get started.  
    1. What other healthcare leaders have said about the role of BIA in their own plans and organizations.
