Gurucul Business Continuity Planning
Gurucul has developed a Business Continuity Plan on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.
Contacting Us – If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do you should go to our website at www.gurucul.com where important information will be posted and updated as necessary.
Our Business Continuity Plan – We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees, property and customer information, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption. Our business continuity plan addresses: data back up and recovery; all mission critical systems; operational assessments; alternative communications with clients and employees; alternate physical location of employees; customer, critical supplier, contractor, and regulatory reporting.
Varying Disruptions – Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to our alternate location and resume business operations. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area and recover and resume business. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, and notify you through our web site at www.gurucul.com. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will notify our clients promptly.
