The companies that survive major outages and disasters are the ones that have been proactive in developing policies, plans, and capabilities to get through such events. They have spent time and resources to make sure they have the infrastructure and controls to mitigate adverse impacts, and have practiced using that capability at all levels of the organization. This combination of preparation and practice gives the organization what it needs to function in a crisis and after.
Northcross Group has developed a system for business continuity planning (BCP) and disaster recovery (DR) based on industry standards, including NIST SP 800-44 rev 1, and best practices from decades of providing incident management services in the public and private sectors.
The NCG Orchestration Suite’s BCP/DR Management system is designed to engage your entire organization to prepare, practice, and conduct business continuity and disaster recovery actions. BCP/DR Management provides a framework with tailorable tools for your organization and key third parties to manage and work through a range of scenarios and keep you operating. BCP/DR Management guides you through the planning and preparation steps to help ensure you always have the most up-to-date infrastructure and processes. It provides a platform to test and validate your efforts, and train your personnel.
Any internet-connected device can be used securely with Orchestration’s Incident Management cloud-based system. This facilitates communication and collaboration among members of your team, while helping determine what steps to take. It tracks actions and provides a structured process to collect and organize data.
The BCP/DR Management system helps you keep BCP/DR information up to date and accessible to your team members when they need it. It provides command-and-control functionality to track efforts and deal with evolving scenarios. The centralized platform keeps all members of your team informed and helps them work together to get through an event and recover from it successfully.
The scalable architecture of Orchestration’s BCP/DR Management system grows and evolves with your organization’s incident response capability. It provides oversight and governance for leadership, along with step-by-step guidance for responders throughout the organization. BCP/DR Management provides the framework for proactive and reactive capabilities that can see your organization through a disaster.
