Business Continuity

North Ridge Securities Corp. has developed a Business Continuity Plan to ascertain how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. 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 the following information on our business continuity plan.

Contacting Us

If, after a significant business disruption, you cannot contact us as per usual at our main number, (631) 420-4242, you can try our alternative emergency-only backup numbers, (516) 528-9870 or (516) 972-6110, or try contacting us at any of the following email addresses (in order of priority):

Our Business Continuity Plan

We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after any significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. 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.

Our business continuity plan 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, contractor and bank impact; regulatory reporting; and the assurance that our customers will have prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.

Our clearing firm, Pershing LLC, backs up our important records in a geographically separate area. While every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, we have been advised by our clearing firms that their objectives are to restore their own operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments within a reasonable time.

Varying Disruptions

Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. 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 our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within one or two business days. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within seven business days. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, transfer operations to our clearing firms if necessary, and notify you through US Mail, email, this web site ( or our customer emergency number, (516) 528-9870, on how to contact us. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our customer’s prompt access to their funds and securities.
