The period of disruption is an estimated duration during which the organization’s operations are disrupted (operationally), or access to the primary location is denied (infrastructure).

Note: This is an expected period of disruption (hour or day) resulting from the exposure of the (unmitigated) residual risk of the identified threat after taking into consideration the existing controls. In this time duration, the organisation’s operations are disrupted, or access to the primary location is denied.
