Estimate the impact of downtime to determine appropriate Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs), as well as review RTO/RPO gaps and assess risks. Specifically, this tool enables you to:
- Identify business processes/functions and dependencies to be assessed.
- Define the scales that will be used throughout this tool to measure criticality, business impact, and risk.
- Determine the impact of downtime and define desired & achievable RTOs/RPOs.
- Review RTO gaps (the gap between desired and achievable RTO).
- Review RPO gaps (the gap between desired and achievable RPO).
- Determine which dependencies have a risk or impact and therefore should be a target of efforts to improve resiliency.
