Business Continuity Planning For IT Auditors

All financial institutions must have a business continuity plan (BCP), it is a necessity to help ensure viability and the continuity of services to your customers and community, for the protection of your employees, to mitigate loss, and let’s face it, it is a regulatory requirement. In 2008, the FFIEC issued a new and improved Business Continuity Planning Handbook, which provides some guidance in what the regulators expect you to have in your plan, but still many plans fall short.
