Business Continuity Management & Disaster Recovery Programs

Aberdeen maintains a business continuity plan (BCP) designed to respond efficiently and effectively to events of varying scope. Significant resources and efforts are dedicated to Aberdeen’s BCP program and our plan defines the critical functions related to restoring business operations with minimal impact.

Our BCP program addresses: data backup and recovery, all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; impact to critical suppliers, third-parties, and other intermediaries; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.

The BCP program is reviewed, updated and tested on an annual basis. Additionally, our primary application providers periodically conduct testing of their respective back-up capabilities to ensure that, in the event of an emergency or significant business disruption, they can provide Aberdeen with the critical information and applications we need to continue or promptly resume our business.

In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit us to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the business disruption.
