The Financial Services sector must be well prepared against disruption – and equipped to rapidly respond to any disruption, disaster, emergency, crisis, threat, or other incidents.
Clients who have entrusted financial services firms with their finances need to know that their assets are safe and being held by an organization with a strong, trustworthy reputation.
Organizations in the financial services sector have complex and intricate infrastructures that must be capable of operating 24x7x365 in a manner that is highly resilient against attacks, threats, and disruptions of all types. In addition, companies in this sector work with multiple third-party service providers, contractors, and cloud-based services that must also operate in a highly resilient manner.
At the heart of preparedness for financial services firms is a strong business continuity, crisis management, and disaster recovery program that is tightly integrated with crisis communications, global security, and executive leadership across the firm.
