DH Frederick Securities, Inc. - Business Continuity Plan
DH Frederick Securities, Inc. has developed and implemented a Business Continuity Plan ("BCP") that includes redundant data centers and alternate facilities to protect its business processes and technology environment in the event of a significant business disruption. DH Frederick Securities, Inc.ís policy is to respond to a significant business disruption (SBD) in an effort to safeguard employeesí lives and firm property, make a financial and operational assessment, quickly recover and resume operations, protect the firmís books and records, and allow our customers to transact business.
The plan addresses business disruptions that may be caused by a local incident or by a regional or market related disaster that applies to many companies. The Plan covers our critical business processes and related employees essential for DH Frederick Securities, Inc. to continue to conduct business for an interim or temporary period during a business interruption. Every important aspect of DH Frederick Securities, Inc.ís securities business, including data back up and recovery; all 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; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to the firmís principals if we are unable to continue our business is addressed in this plan.
DH Frederick Securities, Inc.ís goal is to recover its Critical Business Processes with minimal interruption, depending on the nature of the disruption. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within two days. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and presume to recover and resume business within two days. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our customerís prompt access the firms principals.
