Business Continuity Planning

Our goal is to help you create a business continuity plan that will keep your organization operational in the face of the unexpected

No one likes to deal with the reality that bad things can and do happen. How prepared is your organization to stay up and running in the event of a disaster that affects one or more of your business units or branches?


Cornerstone uses processes advocated by the Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRI) to review your organization’s business continuity plan and bring it into conformance with best practices.

 

 

The four major steps of this process are:

Risk Assessment & Impact Analysis
  • Cornerstone works with key members of your business units to devise a composite threat assessment by business area

  • We work with key business personnel to identify the resources they would need at time of disaster and prioritize the restoration of their key business functions so we can determine recovery time objectives (RTOs)

Design & Construction of the Plan
  • Cornerstone develops (or modifies) your Business Continuity Plan to accommodate recovery of the key functions of the business units

Testing & Maintenance of the Plan
  • Cornerstone assists you in developing a testing schedule of table top exercises and aids in the performance of the first series of tests
