Calculate RTO y RPO

RTO Calculation

The RTO (Recovery Time Object) tab allows you to identify the maximum time on which the resources (technical and human) needed to support the services and processes must be at a minimum level of recovery.

The RTO calculation is shown in a table format with the following information:

  • Tree: It shows the list of dependent Services and Processes which have been defined. The list can be expanded or collapsed with the buttons located in the headboard of the table.

The services are defined in the section ‘Start up/ Catalog of Services’ and the processes in ‘Start up/Business Processes’.

  • Type: It indicates the typology of the phase and this typology can be a service or a business process.

The degree of dependency is established in the tree of processes of the section ‘Start up/Business Processes’

  • Degree of confidence: It indicates the degree of confidence granted to the own MTPD and obtained automatically.

  • Own MTPD: It shows the value of the own MTPD of the service or process

The own MTPD of the services come from the section ‘Start up/Consolidated Pre-BIAS and the own MTPD of the processes of the section ‘Analysis/Consolidated BIAS’.

  • Inherited MTPD:Muestra el valor del MTPD de los activos inferiores, es decir si un proceso o sub-proceso dispone de activos inferiores en el árbol de dependencias y estos disponen de MTPD, el MTPD heredado será el menor de todos los MTPD’s de estos activos.

  • RTO: It allows you to define the time scale for the recovery of the resources needed to support the service or business process. For this task you have to click twice on the cell and define the values desired.

NOTE: In order the RTO will be valid, the time scale must be less or equal to the value of your own MTPD.

RPO Calculation

The RPO (Recovery Point Objetive) tab allows you to define the time scale of information which the company can afford to lose without negatively circumstances for the business. In other words, the RPO determines the frequency which the data must been saved for all the business processes.

The table of RPO calculation only shows the information assets which have been valuated in the section ‘Analysis/Assets Inventory’, allowing the following actions:
