The Auspice Business Continuity Plan
The purpose of the Auspice Business Continuity plan (BCP) is to ensure that Auspice Capital Advisors Ltd. (Auspice) business remains functional, in the event of a significant business interruption (SBI). The BCP establishes an alternative means of operating and provides necessary guidance for restoration procedures in the event of an SBI. This will allow for smooth and rapid re-establishment of service to our processes and with little or no disruption to trading and operations.
The BCP 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, banks and counter-party impact; and regulatory reporting.
Should the Auspice main location 744-4th Ave S.W., Calgary, AB, T2P 3T4, be affected by an SBI the business will move to our alternate site location in order to effectively manage our business and serve our clients. Calls to 888-792-9291 (main line) and emails to the primary office will be re-routed to the alternate site where there is access to all critical systems. If you cannot access the firm through the telephone lines or email, Auspice’s website will be updated with further information at www.auspicecapital.com.
Mission Critical Systems
The Auspice “mission critical systems” are those that ensure prompt and accurate processing of portfolio management, and valuations of financial products. The continued delivery of important services in the event of an SBI is paramount for operations and service reliability in all situations.
The firm maintains its primary hard copy records and its electronic records at the main office. Michael Lee Hing, Director Risk and Compliance, is responsible for the maintenance of these books and records. All critical files are backed up electronically and all computers are backed up offsite daily. Recovery Time Objectives Recovery times will vary based the nature and the depth of the SBI. Various external factors surrounding a disruption, such as time of day, scope of interruption, and status of critical infrastructure, particularly telecommunications, can affect actual recovery times.
