Why Business Continuity in Financial Services is Imperative

The banking sector is one of the most regulated industry and this is especially true when it comes to the preparation for potential disruptions to their critical products and services. Disasters rarely strike with advanced notice. That’s where a Business Continuity Management (BCM) comes into play. Financial institutions, or in short “FI“, may be especially prone to threats, perhaps due to natural or man-made disasters, in the form of attempted heists or cyber-attacks on their monetary funds.

A Business Continuity (BC) Plan is an operational strategy outlining all significant efforts and actions an organization is expected to take in the event of a disaster, such that they can continue running their business with minimal loss and downtime. All BC Plans are centered around protecting both a company’s personnel and its assets from disaster, whether they be physical or digital.  Developing BC plan is primary the end product of a typical BCM programme but appointed BCM professionals from FI are beginning to encounter new challenges of  overlapping with risk management, responding to an cyber security incidents with IT or cybersecurity team, and implementing crisis management plans to manage non-disaster related events.

This seminar aims to provide BCM practitioners from financial services industry in Malaysia with insights into the ways they can meet the expectations placed upon them to deliver effective BCM programme to protect their organization from possible threats. Most importantly, it shows to the delegates on the importance of BCM in today’s unpredictable environment, the emergence of FinTech and how they can continue to “value-add” to the various initiatives within each FI.
