GitLab identifies the business impact of relevant threats to assets, infrastructure, and resources that support critical business functions. Recovery objectives are established for critical business functions.
Business impact analysis (BIA) is a component of both business continuity planning but also of risk management.
In the context of business continuity, BIAs help establish a priority for teams and services.
Additionally, BIAs help document the risks associated with those teams and functions.
BIAs help document the role of a team or service within the organization.
BIAs are not meant to be comprehensive or perfectly reflect the impact that the team or service has on GitLab; BIAs are simply a way to threats and the related impact on business operations.
BIAs should exist for all services and teams that have a business continuity plan.
