Most business continuity management lifecycle diagrams include risk assessment somewhere in the process. Risks are identified and rated, based on the likelihood of each risk occurring and the impact if it does. The problem with this approach is that the risks identified are, more often than not, of the low likelihood, high impact variety.

On October 9th, 2014 the BCI Italian Forum was launched, the first Business Continuity Institute affiliated network in Italy for business continuity professionals.

Some BC practitioners have argued that Risk Management techniques provide a tried and tested approach to dealing with conventional threats, but have limited effectiveness in identifying or evaluating rare but potentially catastrophic issues. There has even been a host of terms that have entered our common lexicon simply to try and define these types of high impact situations.
