Business impact analyses questionnaire

I requested some information regarding our ISO Business impact analyses questionnaire and what the correct process would be the complete these for our implementation. The response we got was that only document business process should be documented, but we are now again at a point in the process where we are not sure which processes should be listed and if we need to document things like physical links at our office not available.

The scenario I can share with you is that we have an office where some of our core systems are located.

1 - What impact analyses should I document?

2 - Do I do a granulate approach and document things like power outages or does things like power outages become a prerequisite to a process not being available.

1 - What impact analyses should I document?

The business processes to be considered are those related to the defined business continuity objectives. For example, if your business objective is to ensure continuity of customer support services, then the processes related to these services need to undergo business impact analysis (e.g., customer service tickets management, escalation process, etc.).

2 - Do I do a granulate approach and document things like power outages or does things like power outages become a prerequisite to a process not being available.

Please note that for Business Impact Analysis you do not need to take into account risks, only the impact of the disruption over the processes. Risk identification (so you can identify the ones with the most chance to occur) can be performed either before or after BIA, but it is a completely different and independent process.
