Greetings! I am a new IT Auditor and currently audits the BCP of a client. My client has no prioritization of which critical systems to be recovered in case of contingency/disaster. However, it has presented a list of priority systems that is currently addressed by its Problem Management policy. Is it acceptable to take the prioritization made in my client's Problem Management policy or do I need to ask them to formulate a separate prioritization of critical systems for BCP? Please advise. Thank you very much!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I recommend you to ask them to formulate a separate prioritization of critical systems for BCP. BCP is a plan designed to ensure the business is able to continue operations after a significant disruption to normal operations. It is not limited to IT, but includes all critical processes involved in running a business.

    I agree completely with the previous respondent. BCP is not just about IT but about the whole business. While a priority list of systems can help with the completion of a business impact assessment it does not address the wider business continuity issue.
