Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
It’s not a matter of if—but when. Whether natural or man-made, organizations ability to quickly and seamlessly recover operations is a costly gamble. Can’t afford to gamble when it comes to unscheduled downtime? Strategic planning for handling extreme or minor disruptions to your business is critical to avoiding interruptions to your people, process and technology. Unscheduled disruptions may not be prevented from happening, but you can be prepared for them when they do occur.
We specialize in creating business continuity and IT disaster recovery programs that meet the unique needs of organizations of all sizes in nearly every industry. Elevate will work with you to build a continuity program that is credible, pragmatic, and long-lasting.
Our services include:
Business Impact Analysis (BIA)
Elevate will work with you to identify the potential impact of external and internal threats to the organization and determines which systems and processes should be considered. A BIA will serve as a starting point for a disaster recovery strategy and examine recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs), and resources and materials needed for business continuance.
Elevate has standard methodologies and processes to efficiently perform the BIAs across your organization and/or business units and efficiently consolidate the information to provide you with meaningful insight on how to prioritize your continuity efforts. This crucial step helps you devise a business continuity plan and disaster recovery strategy that takes into account maximum permissible downtime for important business functions and acceptable losses in areas such as data, finances and reputation.
Threat and Risk Assessment (TRA)
Elevate’s Threat & Risk Assessment (TRA) identifies the man-made, technological and natural threats that can adversely affect your business and IT processing facilities. The study assesses probability and potential impact of each threat and level of mitigation. MHA provides an in-depth report that identifies critical areas of risk and exposure and provides prioritized recommendations for improvement. Elevate can perform a throughout TRA to identify the most likely threats and risks to your organization and assess how effectively you are incorporating best practices to mitigate the risks (e.g. ransomware, natural disasters, hardware problems etc.)
