Key to terms MTPD (Maximum Tolerable Period of Disruption), when any one impact scores four or more: Time it would take for adverse impacts, which might arise as a result of not providing a product/service or performing an activity, to become unacceptable (see also MAO). RTO (Recovery Time Objective): Period of time following an incident within which a) product or service must be resumed or b) activity must be resumed or c) resources must be recovered. MBCO (Minimum Business Continuity Objective): Minimum level of services and/or products that is acceptable to the organization to achieve its business objectives during a disruption. RPO (Recovery Point Objective): Point to which information used by an activity must be restored to enable the activity to operate on resumption.


Dependencies and Recovery Needs [For each key business activity list the dependencies at each time period, starting from the relevant RTO. Then calculate the total requirement across the time periods] [Note: where cells are automatically populated from other sections of the tool, make sure you expand the cells to show all of their contents.]
