The Disaster Experience --- A Mock Disaster Exercise - Bob Mellinger
Chances are that while you read this, an unexpected disaster is causing financial institution stress and confusion and is affecting their long-term ability to provide products and services to its customers. Is the organization prepared to handle it? Will it be able to recover?

These exercises are designed to put you in the throes of a real-life disaster situation, as it unfolds. You will make the critical decisions any organization will have to make - and deal with the consequences of those decisions! After you’ve finished, you’ll understand the importance of planning in advance for a disaster or other business disruption.

Session participants will:

  • Understand the basic principles of emergency management, how they apply to Business Continuity Planning and effective risk management;
  • Understand the importance of creating, maintaining, and testing a Business Continuity Plan;
  • Experience first-hand the problems that can result from a poorly developed, poorly executed, or non-existent plan;
  • Have an opportunity to share personal experiences with colleagues regarding business continuity challenges;
  • Discuss lessons learned from both previously experienced disasters and future disasters that could affect their organization.
