IT Disaster Recovery Assessment

Cornerstone stands ready to assess and revise existing disaster recovery plans in response to changes in your computing environment

In today’s business setting, your computing environment can change significantly over time. Cornerstone’s I.T. Disaster Recovery Assessment provides the foundation for upgrading the I.T. disaster recovery plan and the remediation of any gaps that are currently putting the organization at risk.


Does your current I.T. Disaster Recovery Plan provide for appropriate command and control should you need to use it? How prepared are you to recover from a major adverse event within your I.T. infrastructure? What gaps must be filled immediately to meet not only the regulators’ compliance specifications but also the expectations of various stakeholders for continuity of the business?

The steps we take:

  • Analyze your organization’s I.T. disaster recovery environment and your existing disaster recovery pan from the top down

  • Utilize Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRII) standards to review the plan and its underlying computing environment

  • Review every technology initiative under way in the organization and ensure that the plan is revised to accommodate the future direction of technology at your institution

  • Perform a gap analysis between the I.T. disaster recovery plan currently in place and industry best practices (and Federal Financial Institution Examination Council regulations)

  • Provide recommendations for filling the gaps along with an investment roadmap that will allow your institution to immediately focus on its most current business continuity needs and plan for gradual improvements to the I.T. disaster recovery plan over time
