SDN Communications

When disaster strikes, whether it is a natural disaster or a cyber attack, every aspect of

your business is vulnerable. Proper planning is vital to maintain the critical business

operations of your company during a disaster. A Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery

(BC/DR) program is designed to help your business stave off revenue loss, minimize

operational downtime, and protect against data loss and corruption during times of crisis.

SDN Communications is a regional leader in telecommunications. With offices in South

Dakota and Nebraska, SDN's fiber-optic network touches seven states and has provided

Internet and equipment for over 20 years. When you are a regional leader in

CHR Solutions helped SDN Communications develop a BC/DR program and emergency

response plan. Not only is CHR putting together an action plan should a disaster occur,

but they are determining risk factors, critical business functions and assisting them to

mitigate those risks. CHR Solutions is assisting SDN Communications to set up a

BC/DR exercise program, facilitate the exercise, produce an after action report, and

follow up with a BC/DR Program statement. The BC/DR program statement is a sales

aid provided to maintain their customer base and/or bring in new business for those

customers needing vendors with BC/DR programs in place, not just an Emergency

Response Plan. CHR is ensuring SDN Communications and their clients that they will

always be available and that the BC/DR program and emergency response plan will

protect their investments.
