WesCorp tests biz continuity systems live
SAN DIMAS, Calif. (8/27/08)--Western Corporate FCU (WesCorp) conducted a live exercise of its business continuity plan from its back-up facility in Temecula, Calif. last Friday. All its critical operating systems were run throughout the day from the corporate’s off-site business continuity center after being transferred from its San Dimas, Calif., location. “While most other large financial institutions conduct their continuity plans during the weekend, WesCorp prefers to do these strategic exercises during actual business hours,” said Fred Valentie, WesCorp vice president of operational integrity. Systems tested included WAVE, Member Center, wire transfers, item processing and investment services, and member-related call center activities. WesCorp’s San Dimas staff also traveled to the back-up site two hours away to provide continuity. WesCorp has more than $30 billion in assets.
