A Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Assessment either validates your current plan or uncovers opportunities for improvement.   

The Scarlett Groupโ€™s Assessment Team is led by ISACA Certified Auditors.  

If you donโ€™t currently have a Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Plan, an assessment will provide the foundation required to build a plan.  

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster, and for those that do, only 29% were still operating after two years.  Additionally, companies that lost their information technology for nine days or more after a disaster are bankrupt within a year.
