Event Detail

Event Description

As the world has adjusted to living with a Pandemic, community financial institutions must continue being resilient and mold their operations to the changing regulations and environment. The Pandemic triggered all the risk categories and it brought to light how interrelated all risks are.

In this basic course, you will learn how to switch perspectives from having a Business Continuity Plan to an ongoing Business Continuity Management (BCM) system and how to integrate it into your Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Program. Marci Malzahn will take you through the key elements of the FFIEC’s Business Continuity Management Booklet that is part of the FFIEC’s IT Examination Handbook. You will walk away with a deeper understanding of ERM, BCP, and BCM and with some practical tools to increase your resiliency.
