July 2020 - Online Training Newsletter


Banks must have plans to deal with unexpected occurrences such as data breaches, natural disasters, robberies—and as 2020 has illustrated—even pandemics. But even with business continuity and disaster recovery plans in place, some banks have recently been forced to implement policies and procedures that they were not prepared for. 

These activities had personnel taking a deeper look into their business continuity and disaster recovery plans and realizing they missed the mark in some areas. Community Banker University has created a new online course titled Business Continuity Management for Banks to help banks build a sound BCM plan according to regulatory guidance.

The course learning objectives and outline can be found in the Online Course Catalog. Administrators, please share the availability of this course with the appropriate personnel at your bank. Tell them to enroll today (or enroll them yourselves) so they can ensure their plans for future events are covered and will run seamlessly.

What’s New?

  • A new course titled, Business Continuity Management for Banks, was added to the full course catalog on July 8.

What’s Coming

  • A new version of the course Introduction to Consumer Lending launches mid-August.
