Contingency Assessment and Development
Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) Development
Businesses use information technology to quickly and effectively process information. Employees use electronic mail and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone systems to communicate. Electronic data interchange (EDI) is used to transmit data including orders and payments from one company to another. Servers process information and store large amounts of data. Desktop computers, laptops and wireless devices are used by employees to create, process, manage and communicate information. What do you do when your information technology stops working?
Our service is twofold: first we capture all the information relevant to the client’s ability to withstand a disaster, and second, we document the steps that the client will follow if a disaster occurs. After all individuals have been brought to safety, the next goal of the strategy will be to enact the steps outlined in the DRP to bring all the client’s departments back to business-as-usual as quickly as possible. This includes preventing the loss of revenue; hardware, data and physical IT assets, and minimizing downtime related to IT; and keeping the business running in the event of a disaster.
Business Continuity Plan (BCP) Development
Symptai will review and develop an IT continuity strategy that optimally leverages technology and financial resources to manage the continuity risk by testing your disaster preparedness needs. We provide an overview of the software applications available to support Business Continuity Management (BCM) planning and execution. Your organization will become an example of effective BCM capabilities in practice. Develop and assist in the implementation of policies, procedures, practices to provide reasonable assurances that recovery time and point objectives (as required by the business) will be met in the event of a disruption.
Disaster Recovery Planning and Business Continuity Planning are critical for your organizations long term stability. Through a very detailed knowledge transfer exercise we ensure that your staff are fully prepared to identify critical continuity risk areas and are prepared to respond to improve organizational resilience. In addition to creating the necessary plans we provide you the understanding of how to effectively analyze and test and promote constant improvement.
