Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery & CyberSecurity

Prior, Proper, Planning

Getting Ahead of Business Disruptions with Strategic Thinking

Business continuity is a thoughtful process that describes a complete solution for backup and disaster recovery. A true business continuity solution will protect data on-premise and in the cloud, and also details a data restoration strategy.

Unfortunately, many firms take shortcuts in these areas due to the historically high costs of implementing comprehensive solutions.

New SEC rules for RIA firms

US businesses lose billions of dollars each year to data loss, and recent studies indicate that if your data center is down for more than a week, the likelihood of bankruptcy escalates significantly.

The SEC is defining new rules for Business Continuity Planning for RIAs to help protect investors from the fallout of this type of occurrence.

In this eBook, topics cover:

     - Outdated practices that create a false sense of security

     - The costs of cyber attacks and downtime

     - Best practices for IT in Financial Services

And more
