Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Planning


Organizations have looked to find ways to reduce their exposure to such things as natural disasters, threat of terrorist attacks and other potentially devastating events. Companies are realizing how important it is to quickly recover should they be affected by an outage or, in many cases, minimize being affected in the first place. In addition to being considered sound business practice, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning (DR-BCP) has become a required activity by many industry regulators and government entities. This type of planning, however, can be very expensive and ineffective if not done properly with the necessary knowledge of systems, infrastructure, etc. isn’t applied to the process.

Hypersecurity has certified DR-BCP experts that can work through the process with you to ensure that your organization meets its regulatory requirements and assurance to stakeholders that sufficient due care has been taken in ensuring the organization can withstand a disaster. We will work with you to assess the following components of your DR-BCP Planning process:

- Existence of documentation of the risks, likelihood and impact on revenue or other key business success metrics should business operations be interrupted Documentation of assets involved in critical business processes.

- Testing, maintenance and update process for the plans How well the DR-BCP process is incorporated in the organization’s processes and structure Identification and documentation of potential events that can cause interruptions to business processes and the probability of those events impacting your business.

- Proper implementation of procedures to allow recovery and restoration of business operations and availability of information in required time frames.

- Existence of operational procedures to follow pending completion of recovery and restoration Provisions for appropriate education of staff on DR-BCP processes.

- Documentation of fallback procedures in the event of a disaster.

- The plan’s documentation of how to properly protect sensitive information.

Benefits of our assessment ensure your review procedures will be compliant with those used by federal agencies and follow industry best-practices standards. Our DR-BCP program experts work with your personnel to find solutions to compliance problems based on your individual institution’s specific needs. We work to improve operational quality by identifying areas for potential process improvements and document conditions for activating plans which describe the process to be followed (e.g. how to assess the situation, who is to be involved) before each plan is activated. We also document responsibilities of the individuals, describing who is responsible for executing which component of the plan so your employees can focus on serving the needs of your customers.
