LCH Ltd Members – New Annual Disaster Recovery Test Date 2017
LCH Circular No 3852
31st March 2017
All LCH Ltd Clearing Members
LCH Ltd Members are invited to participate in the next LCH disaster recovery test scheduled to take place on Saturday 10 June 2017.
This will be an opportunity for members to check connectivity between our systems and, where possible, access to our website and reporting systems during a simulated incident; further allowing members to become familiar with LCH’s disaster recovery processes.
All Ltd members are required to participate in LCH DR testing, as documented in the member rulebook. Members can choose between two options to complete testing requirements for 2017:
- Participation in the annual LCH disaster recovery test
Testing is scheduled to take place on Saturday 10 June 2017. During the test, members will be asked to check connectivity between our systems and, where possible, access to our website and reporting systems. Further details, including timings and the member test pack, will be provided to registered participants in early May.
- Data Centre Connectivity Testing - available 24/7
Members also have the option of completing basic connectivity testing to our back up data centre, which can be completed at any point in time. Details regarding this testing can be found on a secure site that has been set up specifically for members. To access this site please register here.
We would be grateful if members pass this notice on to their Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery representative who can confirm your preferred option for meeting this testing requirement. Member responses detailing your preferred option should be emailed to Member.Testing@lch.com by Friday 28 April 2017.
For any queries regarding testing please email Member.Testing@lch.com
