Business Impact (Definition)

Business impact measures the consequence and significance of an impact to the business if a disruption was to occur to a system, process, project and/or other business operations. Business impact is used across the Queensland Government across different areas including security classification, asset assessments and project assurance.

Agencies may tailor business impact assessment criteria and scoring systems (scales) based on the purpose of the assessment and what is generally accepted as best practice. Regardless of the exact scale used, the business needs to agree about what they considered to be a high business impact, as additional management and oversight may be required.
