Risk Assessment and Analysis

Understanding your risks is the first step in defining your recovery strategy.  In-depth interviews are the most effective way to understand your business and the risks faced on a daily basis.  From these discussions, a risk threat matrix is developed and each risk is weighed based on urgency, importance, and cost to mitigate.  From this analysis, the appropriate application of people, process, and technology solutions is identified to properly address the risk.

Defining Recovery Objectives

Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) are the key metrics when it comes to ensuring an organization’s recovery strategy is aligned when looking at the needs of the business and the implementation of the recovery strategy. 

Business Continuity Strategies

Business continuity planning is at the core of Huber Advisors' business activities.  Huber Advisors defines your internal business continuity team, identifies key responsibilities and tasks for recovery, and trains your team on how to respond in the event of an actual emergency.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

With Huber Advisors’ partnership with DirectCloud and their WebTop cloud services, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) becomes a cost-effective alternative to hot sites/cold sites, and building out costly recovery centers.

Plan Maintenance and Simulation Exercises

Plan maintenance involves a site visit, documentation update, and an annual simulation exercise against the updated plan.  Continual maintenance and recurring exercises ensures your business remains ready for anything.
