Business Continuity

No one thinks the unthinkable will happen to them, until it does: a broken water main floods a central business district, a tornado destroys a data center, an earthquake flattens a call center or a wildfire razes a product development lab.

Companies routinely insure their tangible property against loss from disaster, yet they forget that their most valuable assets- their intellectual properties and business processes- may not be adequately protected.

Organizations that have an up-to-date disaster recovery plan in place continue their operations with minimal disruptions in service, employee productivity and customer relations management. Those that don't are in serious trouble.

Our business is helping clients plan for success in all “critical infrastructure” areas. Our staff has extensive experience in disaster recovery planning (DRP) and business continuity planning (BCP), both in the public and private sectors as well as extensive certifications in threat management, DRP, BCP, computer forensics, data security and risk assessment.

 

BCDR - Business Continuity Disaster Recovery acronym business concept

Vulnerability assessments and Disaster Recovery Planning are just good business. They turn the uncertainty of "What if?" into a "Here's what we do now" when the unthinkable does occur.
