At Macquarie, business continuity awareness, preparedness and capability forms an integral part of our business and is detailed in our Business Continuity Management (BCM) Policy and Programme. Like many financial institutions, Macquarie reports its BCP readiness to its regulators on a yearly basis.
The main objective of the Macquarie BCM Policy is to ensure that Macquarie is adequately prepared to continue business critical functions in the event of a disaster and uphold its contractual agreements with third parties including customers. In line with this framework, Macquarie has developed a global avian influenza management plan and strategy in response to the emerging threat of an H5N1 pandemic.
Crisis management procedures and responsibilities are documented, detailing communication and escalation procedures in the event of business disruption or a disaster. These procedures are reviewed on a regular basis by management to ensure they are up to date with current business practices. Concurrently, guidelines are communicated to all employees on a regular basis as part of the BCP Programme.
Monitoring risk to individual countries is regularly conducted by Macquarie’s Corporate Risk Department, focussing on those countries where Macquarie has an existing presence. The strategy uses the advice and pandemic preparation plans of the governments of the major locations in which we operate, the World Health Organisation and our specialist risk and medical advisors.
Preventative measures have been identified that to assist in reducing the impact to Macquarie’s operations by limiting spread of infection. These include supplier agreements for the procurement of Tamiflu, hand washes and masks.
Business continuity planning is centrally managed across the Macquarie by a dedicated team. Each Division has its own BCP Manager responsible for the coordination of the Division’s recovery in accordance with the Division’s Business Continuity Plan. These plans identify key personnel, their alternates and recovery sites.
Disaster recovery plans for all critical applications and systems are tested on a regular basis. Results of application recovery tests are documented and reviewed. Servers for all critical applications are backed up in alternate locations. Tests of main and back-up servers are conducted on a regular basis.
At Macquarie, there has been an extensive programme of annual testing since 2002 with successful results. The rehearsal exercises involve a selection of challenging disaster scenarios for site tests and consist of full building evacuation, business and systems outages in order to measure quality and timeliness of business response and application recovery.
