Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

BE PREPARED FOR BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY

“IT Disaster Recovery is a major weakness in most small business and financial institutions.”

Adapted from the book THE WALL STREET JOURNAL COMPLETE SMALL BUSINESS GUIDEBOOK by Colleen DeBaise

In business there will always be circumstances beyond your control. Catastrophic events can take place and have a severe effect on your business.

Fortunately, those events are rare, but even smaller “disasters,” such as computer crashes, power outages or theft, can wreak havoc on your business.

A Business Continuity Plan will help to insure the safety of your employees and customers. It will safeguard the operations of your institutions from being significantly impacted by disasters. A Continuity Plan will document the recovery strategies, essential resources, plans and procedures necessary to reduce exposure of your institution to financial loss because of the disaster. Effective implementation of a Business Continuity Plan will also:

  • Shorten elapsed time to effect a recovery;
  • Minimize costs to effect a recovery;
  • Avoid confusion and reduce exposure to error in the recovery process; and
  • Avoid duplicated effort by recovery personnel.

In addition to helping you develop a Business Continuity Plan, Bluewater Disaster Recovery Testing provides your financial institution with all that it needs to recover from a disaster.
