Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
Identify potential gaps at your vendor before they disrupt your business or impact your customers.
No doubt your organization has put a lot of time, thought and resources into your own business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) plans and testing, but you need to have replicated that eﬀort when it comes to assessing the same for your third-party providers. Availability is critical for many vendor relationships to be successful.
Venminder’s team of security professionals can assess your vendor’s BC and DR documentation including plans, testing and recovery point and time objectives, resulting in a risk-rated vendor assessment.
Uncover how quickly your vendors can recover
See risk ratings on your vendor’s BC and DR plans so you can spot gaps and ensure that your vendor’s key operations, products and services can continue to be delivered either in full or at a predetermined, and accepted, level of availability.
Improve your eﬃciency and reduce the workload
We assess the paperwork that tends to be very overwhelming and cumbersome, drilling it down to the bare basics that you need to know. No longer comb through hundreds of pages of information.
