Case Study

Disaster Recovery Business Continuity Plan (DRBCP)

Challenge – In Milwaukee, the office of the Employee Retirement System (ERS) is responsible for distribution of the city’s pension plan to more than 12,000 retirees. Staff was beginning the process of setting up a Disaster Recovery Business Continuity Plan (DRBCP) as a preventative measure. DRBCP is responsible for preventing unforeseen disruptions in daily operations and/or data loss. ERS needed assistance in creating a comprehensive DRBCP.

Solution – SSR was called in to formalize the plan and identify vulnerabilities including all internal and external threats that could interrupt business systems.

Result – SSR provided policies, procedures and a roadmap to the recovery of information technology and core business processes in the case of an emergency. In addition, the DRBCP offers peace of mind for ERS that the risk is diminished against sudden or unexpected losses.

“We worked with SSR to document the DRBCP,” says Kelly Reid, Chief Technology Officer for Employee Retirement System. “They came in with guidelines and standards and, over a 10-week period, coordinated the entire solution.”
