Task 1: Business Impact Analysis – extracts from the Boiler Plate

1. Overview

This Business Impact Analysis (BIA) is developed as part of the contingency planning process for the HNetExchange Message system, HNetConnect Directory system and HNetPay Payment system. It was prepared for Health Network, Inc (Health Network).

Indicate the operating environment (i.e. Data Center, etc), physical location, general location of users, and partnerships with external organizations/systems. Include information regarding any other technical considerations that are important for recovery purposes, such as backup procedures or the lack of backup procedures.>

Estimated Downtime 

The table below identifies the MTD, RTO, and RPO for the organizational business processes that rely on the HNetExchange Message system, HNetConnect Directory system and HNetPay Payment system.

Task 2: Business Continuity Plan – extracts from the Boiler Plate

<After discussions with management, the organization implemented the following Back-up Plan: all database files are backed-up to tape at the end of the day. These tapes are then stored offsite. The HNetPay data is backed-up daily and retained for 6 months. The HNetMessage messages are backed-up daily and retained for 3 months. All other data is backed-up weekly and retained for 60 days. If the BCP is executed, the most current tapes are copied and mailed to the alternate site. 

Modify the statements below to reflect this decision. FAILURE TO MODIFY THIS SECTION WILL RESULT IN DEDUCTED POINTS!!!!>

Emergency management standards

Data backup policy

Full and incremental backups preserve corporate information assets and should be performed on a regular basis for audit logs and files that are irreplaceable, have a high replacement cost, or are considered critical. Backup media should be stored in a secure, geographically separate location from the original and isolated from environmental hazards.

Department-specific data and document retention policies specify what records must be retained and for how long. All organizations are accountable for carrying out the provisions of the instruction for records in their organization.

IT follows these standards for its data backup and archiving:

Tape retention policy

Backup media is stored at locations that are secure, isolated from environmental hazards, and geographically separate from the location housing the system.

Billing tapes

· Tapes greater than three years old are destroyed every six months.

· Tapes less than three years old must be stored locally off-site.

· The system supervisor is responsible for the transition cycle of tapes.

System image tapes

· A copy of the most current image files must be made at least once per week.

· This backup must be stored offsite.

· The system supervisor is responsible for this activity.

Off-site storage procedures

· Tapes and disks, and other suitable media are stored in environmentally secure facilities.

· Tape or disk rotation occurs on a regular schedule coordinated with the storage vendor.

Access to backup databases and other data is tested annually

Eradication: The next priority is to remove the computer/security-related incident or breach’s effects. 

· What needs to be done to mitigate the risk of the incident

Recovery: Recovery is specific to bringing back into production those IT systems, applications, and assets that were affected by the security-related incident.
