Business Continuity Plan
ALPINE SECURITIES CORPORATION BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN DISCLOSURE SUMMARY
Alpine Securities Corporation (Alpine) has developed a detailed plan addressing the possibility of a future Significant Business Disruption (SBD) and how we plan to respond in order to protect and provide access to customer assets. Alpine has entered into arrangements with vendors and has secured back-up facilities from which to operate should a SBD occur.
Our first concern in developing this plan is to be able to provide prompt access to our customer’s funds and securities. In considering SBDs of varying scope, we believe that our plan enables us to continue business during most scenarios and believes that we have the capacity to be up and running within 24 hours in a worst case scenario. Should an SBD occur to:
- Our building – back-up facilities can be accessed within a couple of hours and recovery time is minimal.
- The Business district from which we operate – facilities can be accessed within a couple of hours and recovery time should be no more than 4-6 hours.
- A city-wide business disruption – we have the ability to operate remotely and can access customer records and provide liquidity within 12-24 hours.
- A regional or national disruption – would be the most severe and worst case scenario. Depending upon communications availability we should be able to recover within 1 day.
Customers are cautioned, that while we believe this Business Continuity Plan (BCP) to be sound and well thought out, not all scenarios can be accounted for and as such, this BCP is subject to change. Modifications to the BCP will be promptly posted on our web site and customers may alternatively obtain updated plans by requesting a copy of the plan by mail.
