Identified as among the top concerns of the US OCC this course considers cybersecurity with a focus on the issues facing operations and IT risk and the impact of the current recent crisis.

By considering the threats and issues as well as the regulatory drivers, this course provides delegates with risk-based review of this important area and the issues that are  likely to be faced in practice.

One major element of the remote and hybrid ways of working has been an increase in remote working.  This course also considers the risk management issues that this creates and solutions that may be applied.

Who Should Attend

Designed for primarily for senior management, risk management and control staff but will also be of interest to IT risk professionals and those involved with financial crime and security.
