APRA Audits, Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Planning (BCP)

An increasing awareness of BCM, Disaster Recovery (DR) and Risk Management and the emergence of related regulations is seen globally across industries. In Australia, since April 2005, all Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions (ADIs), i.e. Australian banks and general insurance companies, must comply with – and are audited according to – a new APRA (Australian Prudential Regulation Authority) standard in regards to their Business Continuity Planning (BCP) capability. Life insurers and Super funds are also being regulated since 2012/13 according to the APRA Standards CPS232 and SPS232.
