Business Continuity Plan
GCA Savvian Advisors, LLC has established a business continuity plan (BCP) to guide our response to unforeseen events that could cause temporary interruptions of our business operations. The BCP is designed to mitigate the impact of such interruptions.
Under our BCP, GCA Savvian duplicates all critical Firm, client, regulatory and financial information on appropriate media, and stores the backed-up information at remote locations. Such information is regularly sent to the off-site storage facilities. From time to time GCA Savvian participates in disaster recovery exercises to confirm that such stored information remains accessible to it, and accurate. Among other things, GCA Savvian also secures and monitors its data center, regulates its data communication lines and maintains and supervises password policies and procedures to limit access to its data.
GCA Savvian’s BCP also takes advantage of the Firm's multi-state office system by providing alternate locations from which the Firm's employees can temporarily perform essential business functions in the event of a Firm or community-wide disruption. The decision to conduct operations from an alternate location will be made as soon as GCA Savvian determines the severity of the business disruption. Provisions have also been made for clients to continue to be able to contact GCA Savvian’s employees. Updates to clients will be posted on our website, www.gcasavvian.com in the event of a disruption.
Business continuity planning is an on-going process, and we regularly evaluate initiatives to enhance our BCP. Modifications to GCA Savvian’s BCP will be posted on our website, or available to clients upon written request.
