The Institute of Bankers Pakistan (IBP) with a legacy of serving the industry for more than six decades in terms of building human capacity has now joined hands with Business Continuity Institute (BCI) – UK, the world’s leading institute for Business Continuity Management and Organizational Resilience. This alliance will better equip IBP to provide trainings & certification examinations for Business Continuity Professionals at banks across Pakistan.

IBP has always been a solution provider when it comes to pressing issues plaguing the banking industry. In keeping up with the fast paced era of technology and risk factors associated with continuing a business in this environment that are beyond an organization’s control; IBP will now provide a globally acclaimed platform for banks to get their businesses to run smoothly by churning out Certified Business Continuity professionals.

Effective Business Continuity Management (BCM) at any organization depends on becoming competent in the discipline, while demonstrating evidence of due process. This normally involves training people to become competent in all technical and management aspects of BCM, running and improving a business continuity management system and having documentary evidence of all plans, processes and procedures.

This alliance will help bankers get this international certification by appearing for the examination in Pakistan on a discounted rate. It is yet another step by IBP whereby it stays true to its mission of taking banking industry to the next level.
