Business Continuity Issues for Operational Risk Management: Financial Supervision Case Study

Event: Annual Conference - DRI2013

Author: Andro Kull

This case study session shows how business continuity issues may be mixed with other issues (IT) to ensure information security, i.e. availability, integrity and confidentiality. The IT supervision approach will be presented, as it was developed for the financial market in Estonia. The main idea is to consider the requirements for IT governance, information security, business continuity and outsourcing and use the layered approach to implement this approach. Estonia is an interesting country to apply such ideas starting with its market concentration, the situation with main service providers, the connections with group level enterprises, etc.
