Tech Valley Continuity LLC
Turning Potential Disasters into an Annoyance®
Organized in 2006, Tech Valley Continuity works with businesses, government entities and not-for-profits to help them develop business continuity / disaster recovery plans that satisfy their unique needs, budget, and time line. Our mission is to provide practical continuity / recovery solutions that are designed to allow for an efficient recovery from almost any crisis cause by natural, human, or technological events.
Our clients range from the single agent insurance and/or financial management office to multinational bio-pharmaceutical manufacturers. Government clients include multiple state and county agencies, as well as a Board of Cooperative Educational Services organization.
The practice is divided into two (2) main divisions:
Using a TVC consultant or subject matter expert (where needed), we work with clients to help them build plans that allow them to recover their Mission Essential Functions (MEF) in a timely and organized manner. We analyze what they do, how they do it, and the resources / tools required to perform that function. We study the threats to these functions and how those threats will impact operations over short and long durations. We analyze the gaps between their current ability to recover their MEF and make recommendations on how to fill those gaps. Tech Valley Continuity then documents the plans, facilitates exercises designed to test the effectiveness of those plans, and trains staff on their roles and responsibilities if an event occurs.
World Class Solutions
Every organization's needs are different, and one size does not fit all. Therefore Tech Valley Continuity has aligned with multiple business continuity / disaster recover companies to provide alternate facilities, data backup and recovery, emergency telecommunications and technology replacement. We also work with local firms to ensure the required expertise is available when needed.
Geoff Turner is president of Tech Valley Continuity. He has been a Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP) since 1997. In 2006 his planning skills were put to the test when the company he worked for experienced a fire and successfully worked under his plans for six weeks. He is the founding president and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the NY Capital Region Chapter of the Association of Contingency Planners.
Geoff is also an accomplished speaker, and has presented at multiple trade shows and association meetings. When you listen to one of Geoff’s presentations, you will understand why it is no longer a question of “if” you will need a continuity plan, it’s a matter of “when”.
"Business Continuity Plans are no longer an option, they are a sound business decision."
