Risk Management

Managing risk in the corporate enterprise today has become more and more challenging. Virtually every part of a company’s assets lives in a digital world – a world that if comprised, lost or stolen often means the end of that company or crippling business losses. Evolve Partners understands that if your enterprise is a target or just a victim of unfortunate circumstances, the effects could be devastating.

 

Disaster Recovery
What would happen to your business in the event of fire, flood or other natural disaster? Would you be able to quickly resume business, communicate with your customers or suppliers, continue to earn an income or provide for your employees? The reality is that more than 40% of US businesses that experience a catastrophic loss of information never re-open. An effective disaster recovery solution goes well beyond knowing that you have a back-up drive running every night in the backroom. You need to ensure that your data is protected; safe-guarded and available should disaster strike. This requires constant testing and should include an off-site storage strategy.

When properly planned and implemented, a Disaster Recovery plan makes possible the retrieval of lost data and the resumption of system operations. Such procedures are a critical part of computer operations at all levels, especially those involving the storage of long-term or permanent records on electronic media. A solid disaster recovery plan may also be critical to the fulfillment of audit requirements and the maintenance of audit trails in fiscal systems.

 

Security Assurance
Securing your most valuable asset, your information goes well beyond having a firewall or a good anti-virus solution. Businesses large and small need to account for both external as well as internal threats. Putting software and hardware solutions at your network perimeter is just one part of an overall effective security strategy. Understanding the internal requirements of segmenting information, use rights and access to sensitive information is equally important. Leaks of confidential, proprietary or sensitive information could be equally as devastating as losing it to a natural disaster.

 

Change Management
Beyond the need to implement a Change Management policy for regulatory compliance requirements, a solid Change Management process and policy helps with security of your systems and provides for a common method of maintaining those systems. Such a policy helps standardize the way in which an IT environment is administered, ensures that appropriate controls are followed and provides for an audit trail to help reconstruct a series of events that may have led to system or process failure, allowing an organization to more quickly react and return the system or process back to its original state.

These and other Risk Management solutions available from Evolve Partners are designed to provide peace of mind, help your organization achieve and maintain compliance as well as chart a specific roadmap of how your business will recover, continue and sustain.
