Dedicated professionals within the banking and finance industry are constantly focused on preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters and other events so that any impacts on customers and business operations can be kept at a minimum. Below are links to various governmental agencies (federal and state), which provide resources in this context. In addition, we have supplied links for emergency preparedness in relation to hurricanes which can happen from June 1 through November 30. The NCBA has entered into a new partnership with the Financial Recovery Coalition of North Carolina (FRCNC), and there will be open communication between our two organizations during a time of emergency. Should your business continuity professional wish to participate in this group communication, please reach to Vickie Bowers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
