Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

Boston Technical views Disaster Recovery as an integral component, but not the only component, of a client's Business Continuity strategy.  Starting with a Business Continuity Plan, our team works with clients to determine where risks and vulnerabilities exist, whether there are measures that can be taken to reduce or eliminate these vulnerabilities, and what resources need to be present to recover if the unfortunate were to happen.  Once we settle on the appropriate risk/vulnerability reduction measures that will be taken,  implementing recovery and business continuity measures are the next step.   Natural disasters, ransomware attacks, disruption of backbone data services, or even the sudden loss of a critical employee are the type of items that are considered the the Business Continuity planning, documenting, and implementation process when you're a Boston Technical client.

As a Silver Level Microsoft Partner, Boston Technical is uniquely positioned to leverage our internal staff experience with Microsoft's premier consulting resources in order to develop a streamlined set of resources that will provide a cost effective set of options for both on and off-site recovery.

HIPAA/DOD Inspection Preparation

Prior to moving to the healthcare data security field, the owner of Boston Technical spent eight years working in U.S. Government Special Programs as an Information Security Manger.  During this time, the government programs his teams protected were subject to dozens of sponsor information security inspections.  Bringing this extensive experience to his clients in the healthcare industry, he now assists customers in preparing for HIPAA/PCI based inspections at their facilities and core data-centers.   Boston Technical will not only help your company prepare to host an inbound inspection team, but our CISM and CISSP certified professionals will help you throughout the inspection process, remaining on-site with your IT staff and the inspectors; demonstrating the effectiveness of your information security program, and ensuring the inspection team has the most positive experience possible.  The reason we understand what inspection teams are looking for, and know how they want to be treated is because we have been on those teams.  We will work with you to help show the visiting inspection team how seriously your company takes HIPAA/PCI data security.
