If a facility is damaged, production machinery breaks down, or information technology is disrupted, business is impacted and the financial losses can begin to grow. Recovery strategies are alternate means to restore business operations to a minimum acceptable level following a business disruption, and are prioritized by the recovery time objectives (RTOs) identified in a Business Impact Analysis. A recovery time objective is the maximum allowable downtime that can occur without severely impacting the recovery of operations or the time in which systems, applications, or business functions must be recovered after an outage (e.g., the point in time that a process can no longer be inoperable).
