Presenter: Cole Ponto, SBS CyberSecurity, LLC This 90-minute program will be presented live on: December 5, 2:00-3:30 p.m. Recording available through: March 5, 2019 Price: $275   Federal regulators require banks to maintain emergency preparedness plans, such as Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, and Pandemic Preparedness Plans. These ensure continuity of the bank in an unlikely event a significant incident or disaster occurs. The consequences to a financial institution can be severe if proper disaster recovery and business continuity planning does not occur and continuity of business fails. In fact, many significant business continuity risks are connected directly to disasters originating from cybersecurity threats.   FFIEC requirements will be at the center of our discussion, to ensure that not only the best plans are constructed, but also that regulatory compliance is achieved.
