Effective business continuity planning and disaster recovery practices will be discussed during this free webinar, “Business Continuity Planning,” offered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) on Wednesday, August 20, at 2 p.m. Eastern.
During this webcast, Dominic Carullo, an Economic Development Specialist with NCUA’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives, along with Jerald Garner, National Field Supervisor with the Office National Examinations and Supervision, and Jason Radde and Ben Cates, Emergency Management Specialists with the Office of Continuity and Security Management, will outline effective continuity planning and practices for credit unions, including:
- Communicating with members, regulators and vendors
- Establishing back-up and recovery sites in separate locations
- Restoring IT services
- Returning to normal operations
Recent natural disasters have illustrated the importance of effective contingency planning to ensure that all credit unions are able to fulfill their missions and obligations to their members during natural disasters or other disruptions in their operations.
During this webinar, participants will hear from the CEOs of two New York City credit unions who will recount their experiences and lessons learned while recovering from Superstorm Sandy. The webinar will also feature a video interview with the CEO of a credit union in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, whose members were severely affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Participants may submit questions in advance at WebinarQuestions@ncua.gov. The subject line of the email should read, “Business Continuity Planning Webinar.” Participants with technical questions about accessing the webinar may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This webinar will be archived and closed-captioned online here approximately three weeks following the live event.
