TrueNorth Capital Partners LLC and
its wholly owned subsidiary TNCP, LLC (together in this section
as "TrueNorth") is responsible for creating and maintaining
a business continuity plan to support services to its customers.
In the event of a business disruption, we have plans designed
to continue operations of critical business functions.
Our business continuity plan encompasses
business disruptions that may be internal to TrueNorth, and larger
wide-spread disruptions that effect entire regions. Business disruptions
affecting our primary office or region will likely result in the
closure of the office for the duration of the interruption. At
that time, all communications would be re-routed to our professional
staff at alternate locations. A large scale disruption would also
involve the relocation of staff to assist in restoring operations.
Should there be a significant business disruption, customers are
encouraged to visit TrueNorth's web site (www.truenorthcp.com)
for additional information.
Our plan is designed to address
key areas of concern, including but not limited to the following:
• Data (electronic and hard-copy) back-up and
• Alternate communication between the firm and customers
• Alternate communication between the firm and employees
• Alternate locations for employees
• Identification of mission critical systems
• Regulatory reporting and communications
• Identification of critical business constituent and bank relationships
• Financial and operational risk assessments
• Ensuring customers access to critical information, records
and professional staff
Although TrueNorth has taken steps
to develop and implement a business continuity plan, we cannot
guarantee that systems will always be available or recoverable
after a disaster or significant business disruption. However,
we believe that our planning and continued training and testing
will provide an effective response and recovery effort in the
event of a business disruption.
Our business continuity plan will
be reviewed, updated and tested on an annual basis. Additionally,
we will continue to test our critical business systems and services
provided by outside service agents. A copy of our complete business
continuity plan is available to our current and prospective customers
upon written request. Please see the Contact
Us section of our website or contact one of our professional
staff directly by using the links on their individual team page.
