Financial Impact (Col 5 & 6)

  • Hard Impact: Direct Financial Impact.
  • Soft Impact: Indirect Financial Impact and Non-Financial Impact.
  • How Impact is Quantified
    • Describe how this figure is made up, focusing on the most significant items. There could be contractual penalties, interest claims, missed business opportunities and loss of commission, expressed as a formula.


  • The amount from the direct financial impact in local currency, for a period of X days. Please state time period if it is less than X days as some business functions will cease to operate within one or two days after the disaster because there is no new transactions.
  • Remarks: How is the hard impact quantified?
    • Provide the workings or basis for computing the amount of loss. For example, $20,000 received per day multiplied by 2% interest payment for overdraft, multiply by X days of outage.
