Risk Management Planning Education

The Financial Institutions Reform and Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) mandated that the FFIEC provide examiners and financial institutions with risk management planning training in response to concern about the quality of risk management practices in insured financial institutions.

During 2002, the FFIEC decided to enhance its industry education efforts by providing electronic delivery of current risk management endeavors. This allows us to provide more in-depth information on new FFIEC regulations and risk management guidance on specific topics, as well as to increase market penetration by making the information available to more bankers on a cost-effective basis.
