Spohn’s “Business Continuity Planning” (BCP) and “Disaster Recovery Planning” (BCDR) planning helps you restore critical functions and preserve digital assets in the case of a disaster event.
Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) determines:
- Risk management
- The probability of what could occur
- The likeliness a disaster will occur
- The impact a disaster would have on your organization
- What action to take if faced with an emergency situation
Business Impact Analysis
Disaster Recovery Planning includes a Business Impact Analysis to provide you with project management, assessment recovery options, and disaster recovery procedures.
Your Business Impact Analysis includes:
- Determining business continuity sensitivity and needs as seen by the management team
- An Application Critical Analysis which is a list of your business essential, business critical, and mission critical applications
- Recommendations on how to develop the quickest possible recovery time
Spohn will identify your critical systems and determine the maximum time those systems can be non-operational.
Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP)
Spohn acts as your business continuity plan coordinator, identifying your potential for downtime and loss of business. Once downtime is identified, Spohn’s experts help you plan accordingly.
The following are a few of the steps Spohn will perform as part of your Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery planning:
- Interview management staff to help identify and assess company’s needs
- Determine your most critical needs and assign the best measures to keep the most necessary processes running
- Tailor your BCDR plan to meet distinct requirements
- Educate and train your staff on how to test and maintain the plan so it is always up-to-date
- Develop a step-by-step guide to use as a resource during a disaster
