To survive in today’s threat environment, enterprises of all sizes must understand the costs of business interruption, plan to deal with the unexpected, protect life and safety, and—for those most critical business processes—maintain continuous operations under any circumstances.
However, planning and implementing a business continuity plan imposes organizational costs in terms of money, time, and effort. Like any other business activity, the benefits must outweigh those costs, and the benefits must be tied to business requirements.
So how do you spare the resources to work on something that is so critical, yet which doesn’t drive revenue or contribute to your core business?
Telkite can help you develop and implement business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) plans which support your organization’s most critical processes without straining your resources or your budget.
We understand your enterprise is unique. No other organization has the same mission, business processes, stakeholders / customers, vendors, and legal / regulatory environment. For that reason, “cookie cutter” business continuity solutions may not be the best approach for your organization.

Our customized solutions provide a sharp business process focus to yield maximum benefit from your business continuity investments

It begins at the time of the disruption / incident
It ends at the resumption of normal operations
It is focused on resources

the impacts of disruption degrade your ability to serve your
stakeholders. A disaster recovery plan details specific processes to
