New FFIEC Business Continuity Guidelines

Revised business continuity guidelines signal change.

In November 2019, the FFIEC released a revised version of their IT handbook for examiners. The update replaces the section formerly known as the Business Continuity Planning booklet.

With a new title, the updated Business Continuity Management booklet highlights shifting expectations for financial firms, and offers a valuable heads up for what IT, risk, and compliance professionals can expect from their next audit.

Read this white paper to learn about:

  • Specific changes to the booklet, and what they mean for IT security in the finance industry
  • Successfully transitioning from “planning” to “management”
  • The FFIEC’s 10 steps for effective business continuity management
