We will help you establish a business continuity steering committee, policy statement, standard operating procedures, and the tools necessary to drive preparedness and continual improvement. This effort will clarify expectations, enable meaningful management involvement, and set a solid foundation for the development of a business continuity management system.

It’s critical to engage senior leadership from the very beginning to establish goals and objectives for the program. Engaging leadership ensures the program aligns to the strategic needs of the organization and enables management to continuously allocate resources and prioritize continual improvement opportunities based on scope change and performance measurement results.

DO IT RIGHT - THE FIRST TIME 

Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) planning is a vital part of an organization's ability to remain operational in the event of a business interruption. Our professional planning services help you meet your specific BC/DR objectives, whether they involve modernizing your current BC/DR program, developing a new plan or meeting compliance requirements.

Business continuity as a service (BCaaS) is a total business continuity managed service for organizations that wish to outsource the development and administration of their business continuity program. We will provide the expertise, resources and proprietary software required to manage the entire business continuity planning and the RingStor Vault DR process.

We will provide program management functions through all phases of your program. Our program manager will establish a status-reporting schedule with your program sponsor and program team to apprise you of all current and upcoming events and address any issues or concerns you may have during the process.
The business continuity preparedness assessment will provide you with an objective third-party review of your current business and technical environment relative to your BC/DR preparedness based on FEMA's PS-Prep requirements.
Data storage management is critical to the success of recovering each business process following a disaster. Using what we call the Data Continuity Model, we offer an assessment of current and future data storage needs, application storage usage, application data recovery planning, storage architecture and Vault storage and disaster recovery processes.
The purpose of conducting a business impact analysis (BIA) is to understand how interruptions affect business functions. The BIA will define recovery time objectives (RTOs) and prioritize the recovery of your business units, applications and supporting technical infrastructure. By understanding your RTOs and recovery priorities, we can assist you in developing a recovery strategy that meets your business’s needs.
Our technical risk assessment provides an evaluation of the risks facing your technical environment from a business continuity perspective. After we identify your business’s vulnerabilities, we will make recommendations for mitigating those risks.
Based on the results of the BIA, we will conduct an analysis to identify various recovery strategy options, including high-level designs. The analysis will provide you with the data necessary to make an informed decision about which strategy is right for you.
Our business continuity planning services are designed to streamline the BCP development process by combining RingStor business continuity experts and time-proven recovery planning procedures. Using the core data, you provide, we develop a concise, informative and executable BCP, minimizing the involvement of your resources. Business continuity planning is included as part of the full business continuity managed services program, although it can be purchased as a separate service. Our planning services improve operational resiliency, mitigate knowledge loss from staff turnover, reduce cost and protect critical information while allowing you to focus on your core business
We will work with you to develop and execute tabletop exercises to test both business recovery and IT recovery. The tabletop exercise helps you identify areas in your plan where details need to be modified or enhanced to provide a successful recovery in the event of a service interruption
We will help you develop, schedule and perform tests of the business continuity program, including the execution of recovery teams and tasks and the recovery of business units and your supporting IT infrastructure. We will manage the test planning process and monitor the performance of your staff and business solutions during the test. After the test, we will document the results in a report outlining where you either met or failed to meet test objectives.
Upon completion of your BCP, we will provide training and awareness workshops to educate your employees — whether at a business unit level or senior management level — on your business continuity program. We can tailor each workshop to provide the most value to your program.
During an actual event, we will work with your disaster management teams and disaster recovery coordinators to help manage your recovery. The success of your recovery is dependent upon a consistent testing regimen.

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. RingStor will work with you to build a continuity program that is credible, pragmatic, and long-lasting. We invite you to explore our services and product offering.
