EquityMultiple has developed a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) as part of our ongoing contingency planning efforts to mitigate the impact of business interruptions. Since disasters and disruptions are unpredictable by nature, we will have to react flexibly in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.
In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible in light of the scope and severity of the SBD, while safeguarding our employees and firm property, protecting the firm’s books and records, and preserving the interests of our customers.
Our business continuity plan addresses:
- data backup and recovery;
- mission critical systems
- financial and operational assessments;
- alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators;
- alternate physical location of employees;
- critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; and
- regulatory reporting
Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope. For example, an SBD could affect only our firm, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe.
In any situation, we plan to continue business as soon as possible, and notify you through email or our website how to contact us. This plan is reviewed periodically and subject to modification without notice. If you have questions about our business continuity planning or would like a copy, please contact us at your convenience.
