Contributor(s): Heather Darcy

Maximum tolerable period of disruption (MTPOD) is the time following a disaster after which an organization’s viability will be irreversibly impacted if production isn't resumed. 

The term MTPOD first appeared with the introduction of the British Standards Institution's (BSI) British Standard 25999-2, a business continuity management standard which was published at the end of 2007. MTPOD is an important metric when when conducting a business impact analysis (BIA) and creating a disaster recovery/business continuity plan.
