Financial Services
We were commissioned to assess the IT Disaster Recovery plans for a Financial Services company in Leeds. Our approach involved running workshops with technical support, operations, security, and application teams to evaluate each team's readiness to invoke the recovery and continuity plan. Having done this with each team separately, we then brought everyone together in another workshop meeting to identify inter-dependencies between tasks and teams. This helped build a much more robust sequence of recovery activities and exposed several false assumptions that would have impaired the effectiveness of the recovery plan. We gave the client a cohesive set of actions that would mature their DR readiness and provide a basis for estimating the recovery time required for their most critical business services.
