NOTE: The health and safety of our members remains our top priority. We will continue to monitor and utilize guidance from the CDC, and will convert this program to a virtual format should we need to. This program will take place as scheduled, either as an in-person seminar or a webinar.

PROGRAM INFORMATION

Banks aren’t just responsible for their own business continuity plans – they must also ensure that critical vendors have properly drafted, executed and tested plans. Is your bank properly addressing the connection and overlap of vendor management and business continuity planning? Have you tested this connection yet?

At this workshop, attendees will learn how best to:

  • Assess and break down silos between departments handling vendor management and business continuity planning
  • Manage third-party vendors via risk assessment, cybersecurity threats, vendor due diligence, monitoring and contract structuring
  • Identify critical vendors and key contract provisions
  • Structure a tabletop exercise of plans to exercise third-party service provider risk
  • Communicate essential information during and after a business disaster

In addition, registrants will participate in a tabletop exercise to learn best practices for organizing, preparing for and conducting an effective tabletop test of a BCP plan to include third-party service provider considerations.

Workshop attendees will also receive a corresponding whitepaper, which will provide additional details on the program information covered.
