Data Automation & Maintenance

Your Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) reference information related to organizational assets such as:

  • HR contact info for call-trees
  • Business processes to identify dependencies on IT services
  • Supplier contacts
  • Other data/information that is required at the time of disaster for effective incident response

When your plan-related data only resides in the Plan, it does not get updated until Plan Maintenance occurs.  Because change is the only constant, any modifications made to the data will not be reflected in the Plans until maintenance occurs, which questions your Plan's integrity at the time of a disruption.

BCPs stored within eBRP Suite reference data related to your organizational assets in the database. eBRP Suite includes an easy-to-use data integration interface to schedule & automate the information from the authoritative sources. The quality of your *information is maintained with every data refresh.
