Vernovis Creates Secure Business Continuity
A financial services company with $11.65 B in assests under management needed help executing a complete Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR) plan. Before enlisting Vernovis, they only had a partially complete BCP. With a small IT team, they didn’t have the time or expertise to manage building, testing and finalizing these plans.
Vernovis provided a CISO who was “a great addition and helped create more of a team.” Vernovis’ consultant worked directly with the client’s cyber- security risk committee comprised of key stake- holders and leaders from across the company.
In just two weeks, the CISO ﬁnalized the BCP and DR, then designed, presented and facilitated testing and training for the entire cybersecurity risk committee, which included six real-life disaster scenarios. The testing involved simulations, table-top drills, as well as a live WFH, virtual desktop test with the entire team.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, they were able to successfully and securely transition all 60 employees to WFH overnight. Their team has been able to access all of their applications, virtual desk- tops and collaborate securely. “Because we were set up, we still have the time and bandwidth to do cybersecurity videos, training, phishing test and other proactive measures.”
