Business Continuity Plan Disclosure Statement


Business Continuity Plan Disclosure Statement

 

Veritas Independent Partners, LLC (“VIP”) has created and maintains a business continuity plan which identifies our procedures relating to an emergency or significant business disruption that are reasonably designed to enable us to meet our existing obligations to our customers.

 

Our business continuity plan addresses how we will continue to operate our business in the event of a future significant business disruption and how we plan to respond to events of varying scope. We will conduct an annual review of our plan to determine if any updates to the plan are needed in light of any changes to our member’s operations, structure, business or location.

 

The firm’s plan addresses the following key areas:

 

 

(1)              Data back-up and recovery (hard copy and electronic)

(2)              All mission critical systems;

(3)              Financial and operational assessments;

 

(4)              Alternate communications between the member and its customers;

 

(5)              Alternate communications between the member and its employees;

 

(6)              Alternate physical location of employees;

 

(7)                  Critical business constituent, bank, and counter-party impact;

(8)              Regulatory reporting; and,

(9)              Communications with regulators.
