7Sigma Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Policy

As of June 2021.

The goal of 7Sigma’s Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery (“BC/DR”) planning is to ensure 7Sigma has the ability to rapidly adapt and respond to business disruptions, and safeguard people and assets, while maintaining continuous business operations.

7Sigma achieves resiliency through four principal areas of focus: Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Incident Management and Crisis Management. 7Sigma maintains our readiness by proactively assessing operational risks, establishing contingency plans, and administering incident response and crisis management training. 

Under the 7Sigma BC/DR program, all critical business functions and locations are required to maintain and exercise alternate operation strategies. 7Sigma validates that each of its teams’ BC/DR strategies are effective. For critical business operations, we conduct internal audits of business continuity plans and moderate exercises to ensure the plan efficiently mitigates realistic disruptions. 

7Sigma maintains a risk framework that accounts for the evaluation of our technology, applications, data, processes and overall organization to ensure our risk mitigation strategy operates at multiple levels with broad coverage.

In the event of a business disruption, we have plans designed to allow us to continue operations of critical functions.  We accomplish this in part by:

  • Using redundant processing capacity.

  • Designing our technology and systems to support the recovery processes for critical business functions. 

  • Using business and technology teams that are responsible for activating and managing the recovery process.

  • Exercising our recovery procedures and testing those procedures on a regular basis.

When it comes to disaster recovery, as part of our strategy, 7Sigma leverages rigorous business impact and risk analysis to identify applications/services that are critical to each of our products.  By building within the AWS environment, we benefit from all that AWS has to offer. Our applications/services are hosted in separate Availability Zones (AZ) using industry-standard practices to copy data across multiple AZs in real time.
