Business Continuity

The Federal Reserve has implemented a number of measures to promote the continuous operation of financial markets and to ensure the continuity of Federal Reserve operations in the event of a future crisis. The process of strengthening the resilience of the private-sector financial system-focusing on organizations with systemic elements-is largely accomplished through the existing regulatory framework.
