When it comes to the continuity of your bank's IT infrastructure, a
DR/BCP solution can ensure virtually no system-wide downtime and
certainly no single point of failure.

Because of the increasing layers of bank regulation and the number
of factors to consider, we recommend taking a measured and realistic
approach to a DR/BCP solution for your community bank. Consider
both your bank's business strategy and level of risk tolerance. Then,
perform a simple Business Impact Analysis.
Once you've determined the appropriate course of action for your
bank, review the spectrum of solutions available. There are custommade solutions out there for community and regional banks. Smaller
banks no longer have to opt for a 'go-it-alone' approach, or worse,
do nothing at all. In today's technology-driven world, it's too costly a
decision not to make.

Be sure to weigh your options, factoring in what's important to your
customers, and other considerations such as the geographic spread of
your branches. Finally, seek expert advice and a range of opinions from
both inside and outside your institution.

Five - Limited in-house tech resource
Six - Service value
Seven - Flexible payment model (pay as you go)
