"“Good overview on payments systems and its main risks. It was important to make us reflect about how fast payments are changing over the world and how we must be prepared to audit its processes.”"
Senior Risk Manager, RBS Bank, USA

Everyone is still talking about how payments are changing the way we are working. From faster payments through blockchain and cybercurrencies to changes at SWIFT and with card companies, much is changing as faster payments are provided to the marketplace.

This course looks at current developments and helps organisations to understand what is happening, enable them to consider their options, focusing on the risks that are likely to arise in practice including up-to-the-minute developments.

"The course was beneficial in expanding my knowledge of payment systems and risks. The tutor was very engaging. "
Federal Bank Examiner, FDIC, Arlington
Who Should Attend
