Is your bank ready for the unexpected? What if sudden disaster strikes? Will your business continuity plan hold up under a real-life disaster? Recent events have taught us that business continuity plans are not just for examiners. They must be well thought out, thoroughly tested, and ready at a moment’s notice.
This session will guide you in creating an effective plan; assessing, managing, and monitoring risks; and working with third-party technology service providers (TSPs) to prepare your institution for a disaster. It will also include “lessons learned” from a banker whose business continuity plan withstood a real-life disaster.
