Business Continuity Disclosure
Greenhill has designed a business continuity plan (“BCP”) to evaluate and manage a potential significant disruption to its business operations so that we may continue critical business functions in the event of an emergency. Critical functions include the storage and preservation of data, alternate communications with clients and regulators, and alternate communications with employees. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.
If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at 212-389-1500 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, you should refer to our posted message on our web site at http://www.greenhill.com. The BCP was designed after reviewing the potential risks and ability to recover from key losses. The BCP is reviewed and updated at least annually. The BCP includes discussion of potential disruptions including loss of one or more offices, loss of communication services, loss of power, loss of key personnel, and loss of key service providers. Our BCP addresses: data back up and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, bank and counter-party impact; and regulatory reporting.
Greenhill utilizes its various off-site locations to replicate critical data and technology. In the event of a significant disruption, it is Greenhill’s goal to recover from the disruption within 24 hours or less so that we can continue business operations. Greenhill intends to respond to such disruptions by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, and protecting the firm’s books and records. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope. A disruption may affect only our firm, a single building housing one of our firm’s offices, the business district where one of our firm’s offices is located, the city where one of our firm’s offices is located, or a whole region where one or more of our firm’s offices are located. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing one of our firm’s offices, we will make every effort to transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within 24 hours or less. In a disruption affecting a business district, city, or region including one or more of our offices, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within 24 hours or less. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, and notify you on how to contact us through our web site http://www.greenhill.com. The nature of the BCP is to lessen the impact of emergencies. Because events that bring about disruptions are unpredictable, Greenhill may have no ability to restore full service in the event of failures in certain infrastructure such as utilities, communication networks, transportation, and third party providers. Greenhill does not guarantee that it will be able to continue or resume business operations within any specified period of time under all circumstances.
