Senior Advanced Track 1

Resiliency Reimagined

Monday, September 24, 2018
1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Dan Bailey, LegacyTexas Bank

The integration of BCM into the greater Operational Risk management (ORM) framework is fast becoming an imperative. The fact is, BCM has collaborative integration points with many other programs that are part of the ORM framework i.e. Vendor Management, Regulatory Compliance Management, IT & Information Security, Project management, and Enterprise. Many industries continue marching toward tighter oversight and management of risks. As such, traditional stand-alone operational programs like Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery are being collaboratively assimilated under a broader set of Operational Risk Management programs. We’ll discuss how organizations are seeing the need to ensure proper and better oversight into their ability to maintain continuous operations by placing BCM programs under the governance structure of ORM. BCM has traditionally been a tactical set of strategies leading to the sustainability of a business, while ORM is the strategic approach to a business’ overall sustainability. It’s a necessary change in focus!

Acknowledging risk and associated controls required to withstand significant impact resulting from a business interruption... Is that resiliency? Building out the strategies after the interruption to strengthen the organizations standing to be even better than before... Is that resiliency? The answer: it depends…and yes. It depends: On the corporate culture, the alignment of the BC strategy to that culture, and clarity on the most critical functions as the underpinnings supporting that culture. Yes: engaging in shared roles with the business, IT, vendors, and addressing geopolitical considerations… all part of the curiosity. During this session, we’ll review these areas using references in the 2008 movie: The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons (pre-work…watch the movie). Managing Business Resiliency via Geographic Redundancy Strategies: It’s a Curious Case Indeed…

Citibank is the world’s largest financial services corporation, spanning over 160+ countries with 16,000+ facilities, and processes $9 Trillion US Dollars daily while handling an average of 8 million transactions per day. Understanding complex event patterns permits the early detection of fraud, security intrusions, system failure conditions, and outage situations detrimental to Citi’s worldwide operations. Enterprise event management process enables automation, collaboration, analytics and standardized processes to mitigate various threats. Recognizing the complexity of the infrastructure as a threat, we simplified the complexity by consolidating our infrastructure. Proactive analytics helped to identify risks before they became disruptions which dramatically improved resiliency. We implemented automated impact decision analytics providing real time visibility to inbound threats that help us come closer to developing the predictive analytics model to better understand the risks of today and prepare for tomorrow’s emerging threats.
