TOPIC: BCP

BCP and your vendors - are you prepared?

Join us as we discuss arming your institution with strategies and tools for uncovering vendor BCP vulnerabilities and fortifying your own business continuity plan. Register for the webinar today!

Do your critical vendors have well written, executed and tested business continuity plans? If they don’t — or if you don’t know whether they do — your financial institution may not be nearly as prepared to weather a disaster as it thinks.

This webinar will explore the link between vendor management and business continuity planning (BCP) to show why it’s not enough for FIs to develop internal business continuity plans. Plans must also address vendor preparation and response to crises.

You’ll learn:

  • Where BCP and vendor management guidance overlap
  • What to look for when assessing a vendor’s BCP
  • The difference between critical vendors and vendors critical to BCP
  • The most common mistakes FIs make when addressing vendor BCP
  • How to leverage contracts to ensure strong vendor BCP

      Free December Webinar! Tracking Exam and Audit Findings

      You are invited to our December webinar discussing best practices for tracking and avoiding exam and audit findings. Register for free today! If you are not able to make it to the live event, the recording will be available for download afterwards.

      Standard compliance protocols are set to ensure that processes are followed by management and employees, internal audit, external audit, and government review. In spite of those checks and balances, examiners and auditors uncover deficiencies in your processes, and it falls to your team to resolve them. These issues can be the proverbial ‘hot potato’ on who takes the necessary action on the findings. It’s common for the findings to revolve around third-party risk, business continuity issues, and compliance areas. This webinar will address:

      • The dangers of only using Excel spreadsheets to manage findings
      • Best practices for policies and procedures to avoid findings in the first place
      • How to track to guarantee complete remediation of findings
      • The benefits of testing your remediation to ensure changes take effect
      • Best practices of vendor management, business continuity planning, and compliance to help your financial institution avoid findings

        On September 11, 2001, Lt. Col. Darling worked for the White House Military Office, Airlift Operations Department.
