NCUA webinar eyes biz continuity planning

Two CEOs of New York City credit unions will recount their experiences and lessons learned during Superstorm Sandy during a free NCUA webinar on business continuity planning and disaster recovery practices at 2 p.m. Eastern Aug. 20.

The webinar, "Business Continuity Planning," will be led by Dominic Carullo of NCUA's Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives, Jerald Garner of the Office of National Examinations and Supervision, and Jason Radde and Ben Cates of the Office of Continuity and Security Management.

Effective continuity planning and practices will be outlined, including how to:

  • communicate with members, regulators and vendors;
  • establish back-up and recovery sites in separate locations;
  • restore information technology services; and
  • return to normal operations.

Along with presentations from New York City credit union CEOs, the webinar will also feature a video interview with the CEO of a credit union in Baton Rouge, La., whose members were severely affected by Hurricane Katrina.
