The Silicon Review
A business continuity plan is a document that will guide the business during an emergency. It will contain details to help enterprises to function during and after an event. It usually involves planning how your essential products or services can continue. The traditional business continuity plan focuses on what will happen if the business or equipment is damaged. Based on recent events, that is, in case of severe infectious disease, like a pandemic, we must have a plan in place for the workers who are unable to report to work for a brief period. During a pandemic, businesses, schools, and social organizations may be required to temporarily cease operations to contain the spread.It is crucial to have your core business activities to remain operational for several months with limited staff. Remver is one such firm that helps you develop sound Disaster

In conversation with Dr. Claudia E. Tatum, Founder and CEO of Remver IT Consulting
Q. Tell us in brief about your Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Solutions.
Globalization and real-time operations worldwide on a 24/7 basis will continue to grow and force enterprises to adapt to the new technological changes to keep up with the new market demands, regulations, cybersecurity challenges, and new legislation. Remver IT Consulting is leveraging these trends by establishing strong partnerships with worldwide companies, providing Disaster Recovery as-a-service Solutions (DRaaS), and State of the Art Cyber Security and Business Continuity tools to enable organizations to transform their risk and cybersecurity posture and reduce risk. Our goal is simple; we want to empower every organization with the knowledge and tools they need to build cyber-resilient and business-resilient enterprises and stay ahead of risk and attackers. The alignment of business requirements with IT recovery capabilities means the synchronization between business processes/functions, applications, servers, IT infrastructure, people, facilities, and 3rd party suppliers. Your company’s future depends on your ability to continue to perform your business processes (pay employees, supply chain, manufacturing.) We help our clients stay /remain in business with strategic and State of the art DRaaS solution because being down is a high risk when your competitor is up and running. The reality of the world that we live in today is that companies cannot afford downtime anymore.
Q. Expertise is the first and biggest advantage of the right business consultant. How do you source the right talents to maintain the quality of your expertise?
We source the right talent through a combination of networking, LinkedIn, and Job Boards. For more than 20 years, our leadership team has allied to well-known and experienced consultants willing and able to provide top of the line IT, Cyber, and Cloud Security solutions.
Q. To bring out the story, share one or more case studies where your company has helped its clients overcome their challenges, and attain desired outcomes with your innovative array of solutions.
Many companies that we have worked with had no idea about which servers were critical, let alone which applications were essential or of a high priority to the business areas (Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3). If you asked our Clients what their organization would do if all of its systems went dark one day, they would answer that question with confidence.
The era of writing long Business Continuity & IT Disaster Recovery plans are gone. We don’t write business continuity plans for the shelves, we write them for the users, implementers, and stakeholders. In other cases, companies implemented new continuity capabilities by allowing employees to bring their own devices, e.g., laptops, smartphones, and tablets. They forgot to assess the new risk and threats to the organization to minimize business operations' disruption should the devices were compromised. How do you tell your employees that when they leave the company, their personal devices must be wiped out? Shouldn’t the employees be aware of this policy before they agreed to utilize their own devices? We help organizations with identifying risk and putting policies and procedures in place to mitigate risk (e.g., reputational, legal, financial) and unnecessary headaches. Today, we are facing an unprecedented crisis in our Nation with Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Pandemic, resulting in a potential economic depression. We have all felt the blunt force of this pandemic in some way on a personal level. In times of crisis, leaders must rise to the challenge, and Remver IT Consulting is here to lead the way. Remver IT Consulting will guide business leaders on how to do more with less, modernize their companies and communication, and develop methods of getting things accomplished efficiently in the face of unparalleled tests.
