Business Continuity Plan
Oil & Gas Postings has developed a Business Continuity Plan on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.
We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
Our Business Continuity Plan 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
- Critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact
- Regulatory reporting
- …and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.
Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. 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 3 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 recover and resume business within one week. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, transfer operations to another location if necessary, and notify you through our web site www.oilandgaspostings.com or our customer emergency number, 888-799-4418 on how to contact us. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our customers prompt access to their funds and securities.
If, after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at 281.715.6319, you should call our alternative number 888.799.4418, email: email@example.com or go to our web site at: www.oilandgaspostings.com.
