Pandemic Planning White Paper

With news of the swine flu appearing in the headlines almost daily, credit unions will want to review their disaster preparedness plans in anticipation of a possible outbreak in their community.  The CUNA Technology Council recently released a new white paper titled "Pandemic Planning." (one of the papers bundled in the package above). Before you give into the temptation to delay pandemic planning, remember this message from reputable scientists: It's not a question of "if" but "when" a pandemic will occur.

The U.S. government's Web site for pandemic planning,, defines a "pandemic" as a virulent human flu that causes "a global outbreak of serious illness. Because there is little natural immunity, the disease can easily spread from person to person." The potential loss of the credit union's vital "human capital" means credit unions must take a different approach to providing business continuity.
