Disaster recovery for banks was a plan written to help the bank recover in the event of a natural disaster. With continued interdependence on technology, these plans have become more comprehensive to encompass many different types of events that can disrupt normal bank operations. This planning has evolved into what is now known as Business Continuity Management (BCM). BCM plans incorporate analysis of potential system downtimes, resources, and risks to provide sound strategies and detailed plans for recovery and resilience of normal bank operations in various types of “disaster” scenarios. This course outlines the steps to build a sound BCM plan according to regulatory guidance. This course is intended for management, directors, and security personnel, both physical and information.
