Spokane, Wash.-based Sterling Savings Bank has selected IT-Lifeline (Liberty Lake, Wash.), provider of disaster recovery and business continuity services for small to medium businesses in the Pacific Northwest, as its workplace recovery center.

IT-Lifeline offers a comprehensive solution for institutions looking to improve their current disaster recovery plans and processes or to start the process from the beginning, according to the company. IT-Lifeline led Sterling Savings Bank through the Business Continuity Planning process, in which risks, both internal and external, were evaluated. The process has evolved from discussion and documentation to increased organizational resiliency including work place recovery.
