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

The Scarlett Group’s Assessment Team is led by ISACA Certified Auditors.  

If you don’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.
