      In reply to FDIC and SEC regulations

      US-chartered banks, S&Ls, credit unions, and the SEC have the same examining body: Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, the FFIEC (http://www.ffiec.gov/). The FFIEC covers more than what is in the “standard” Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery plan, but someone creating a plan for a US-chartered – and some State-chartered institutions – needs to know FFIEC’s BC requirements. These are available at no charge in PDF format from the FFIEC URL. But as with most regulations, the core requirements are simply common sense. Unfortunately, it takes regulatory agencies (HIPPA, FFIEC) to force some organizations to do what should be done for the organization’s own self-interest.
