Program Topic: "Identifying and Managing Technology Risks"

With the successful transition of the industry beyond the initial year 2000 date change, technology continues to grow as an increasingly complicated operational risk area that requires new knowledge and expanded risk management techniques. While not ignoring traditional risks, we believe the 2001 Risk Management Planning Seminar can provide the most value to the industry by providing senior bank management with an update on the risks/benefits of these emerging technologies and the evolving regulatory responses.

The FFIEC was established in March 1979 to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms and to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions. The Council has five member agencies: the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Office of Thrift Supervision. The Council's activities are supported by interagency task forces and by an advisory State Liaison Committee, comprised of five representatives of state agencies that supervise financial institutions.
