Pandemic Planning and swine flu

02 June 2009  |  3536 views  |  0

Interested in the Finextra community thoughts on Pandemic planning frameworks and dealing with the H1N1 flu (Swine flu) in other countries.

In Australia, the regulator has released guideline on planning for pandemics that includes the potential for 25-50% of staff working from home for 6 months - how many systems can last that long untended locally? see this for the prudential practice guide from APRA http://www.apra.gov.au/Media-Releases/06_49.cfm

The regulator has also given some guidelines to some local banks on how to reset the stress testing - see http://www.apra.gov.au/ADI/upload/AMA-Accredited-ADIs-letter-re-pandemic-risk-paper-26-May-2009.pdf  (thanks to ozrisk.net for the APRA letter link)

We have contemplated how it effects our business, because it won't just be the bank staying at home - vendors & developers will be too!

We briefly summarise the changes to our Business Continuity Planning here at http://web.mac.com/brentjackson1/Rubik_Financial_-_technology_for_your_financial_services_business/News/Entries/2009/5/29_Pandemic_planning.html

How are other countries dealing with this, is it a Y2K or a 'file and forget'?

WHO says they may have to declare a pandemic due to Victoria - but also say not to panic...http://tinyurl.com/nrtp6k
