Knowledge, Experience, Talent & Tools
Continuity consulting services designed to fit your business, utilizing proven, scalable and sustainable methods.

Strong Link Data (SLD) is a privately held consulting services company focused on Business Continuity (BC), Continuity of Operations (COOP), Continuity of Government (CoG), IT disaster recovery (IT-DR) and other continuity, organizational resiliency, and risk management disciplines. SLD has a highly flexible approach that easily scales to meet your organization’s needs. SLD’s consulting team is staffed with subject matter experts (SMEs) in all of the Continuity disciplines.

Business Impact Analysis (BIA)
Whether you are meeting senior executives for the first time or looking to update detailed BIA findings generated each planning cycle, SLD tailors each BIA project to the customer’s needs and requested scope. For our Federal government and military clients, continuity standards mandate determination of mission essential functions (MEFs). The BIA is the proven, effective methodology to document impacts caused by disruption to justify designation as an MEF. The BIA is also the most effective means of uncovering critical dependencies without which MEFs can function.

Continuity Program Design
You have been asked to initiate a continuity program and are looking for the latest best practices to start your program. SLD has the expertise and methods to ensure program granularity will be properly balanced to meet management objectives as well as cost and resource constraints while achieving repeatable, sustained Continuity capability across the organization.

Continuity Planning
Continuity planning is not a short term project. Continuity planning must be treated as a repeatable process involving the appropriate stakeholders across the organization. SLD’s consultants are highly trained in the leading planning methods and software tools. SLD can assist you in defining an appropriate level of detail in populating your plan components.

Exercises and Testing
SLD consultants have the experience and tools to help your organization plan and conduct exercises and tests of any type and scale. We assist clients with a variety of testing initiatives, including senior level management events and building exercises of self-directed drills.
