Business Continuity Plan
At Advent, we are committed to protecting the interests of our clients in the event of a business disruption. The Business Continuity Plan summary below details how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business.
Our business continuity plan addresses all areas affected by a business disruption of any type: data backup and recovery, financial and operational systems and assessments, alternative communications with clients, employees and critical suppliers, and alternate physical location of employees if necessary. Our plan is designed to enable the firm to recover quickly and restore business operations as quickly as possible, safeguard our employees and property, protect the company’s books and records and assure our clients prompt service through alternative offices if we are unable to continue our business locally.
In the event of a disaster in one our offices or geographical area, there should be minimal disruption in service, and recovery will begin on local computer hardware as quickly as possible given the events. All critical financial application and data files are hosted from our Hanover, Maryland area and replicated at an alternate site in Virginia. This facility maintains redundant information at an offsite location as well. In either situation, we plan to begin recovery immediately and notify clients how to contact us through our website www.advent-inc.com and emergency telephone number 301-725-7051.
In the event of a disruption to our headquarters in Annapolis Junction, Maryland, we will transfer operations to an alternate location as necessary in order to restore critical operations within the same day through our disaster recovery site. Other functions will restored within the week from the disaster recovery site.
If you have questions regarding our Business Continuity Plan, please contact us at www.advent-inc.com. The plan is subject to change without notice. In the event that the Business Continuity Plan summary is modified, the updated document will be available at www.advent-inc.com.
