This course considers the elements that build up to a cybersecurity program within a retail bank, focussing on the risk issues that currently apply due to the recent crisis.  By considering the threats and issues as well as the regulatory drivers, this course provides delegates with a review of this mission-critical area and the issues that are faced in practice.

One major element is 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 senior management, risk management and control staff but also be of interest to IT risk professionals and those involved with financial crime and security.

All delegates who complete the course will receive a Certificate in CyberSecurity in Financial Institutions – Retail Banking Risk; and for those who require a demonstration of competency via an exam there is an optional 20-question multiple choice quiz, fully invigilated/proctored via email, which includes results reporting at no additional charge.
