On June 18, 2016, DRI China held its 16th CBCP Salon in Beijing. Mr. Jeffrey Yu, the president of DRI China, hosted the event and acted as moderator. The guest speakers were Mr. Liu Yan, senior consultant of Ernst & Young (China) Business Consulting Ltd. and Mr. Qiu Xuexiong, Senior Adviser of Shenzhen ESC Technology Ltd.

Although the weather in this summer is steaming hot, the attendees were very enthusiastic. There were nearly 50 people attended the event, which only originally planned for 30 attendees. Among those in attendance: Zhao ChenGan, member of the DRI China Committee and China Banking Association, Yin Hui, of Beijing Teamsun Technology Co., Ltd., Gou Xiaojun of Taiji Computer Co., Ltd., Shao Jiangning of Microsoft China, Yao Haoxuan of Ernst & Young (China) Advisory Ltd., and Xu Fei of Centrin Data Systems Co., Ltd.

The first speech by Liu Yang was “Business Continuity Management Practice in the Internet Financial Industry,” and Qiu Xuexiong presented “An important tool for Enterprise-class Business Continuity Management.”

After the guest speakers, participating experts had a lively discussion and debates, especially on the topic of the differences in the BCM practice between the Internet and traditional banking financial institutions. Internet financial institutions’ practice in BCM is a bold trial, according to Liu Yang, sharing his experiences.

The moderator summed up the five BCM Practice Breakthroughs:

  1. Application objective breakthrough
  2. Risk scope breakthrough
  3. The main responsible body breakthrough
  4. Method of implementation breakthrough, and
  5. Measurement breakthrough.

The whole event lasted more than four hours – and could have gone much longer. Finally, the moderator had to ask people to wrap up the discussion and concluded the event. You can view photos from the salon in DRI’s Flickr album.
