Certificate Course “Infor­mation Security Officer for Credit Insti­tu­tions” — May 5 to 8, 2020

The German Banking Act (KWG) and MaRisk require banks to ensure the integrity, avail­ability, authen­ticity and confi­den­tiality of data in their IT systems and processes. But secure and efficient IT is also essential for the economic success of a bank.

The new “Banking Super­vision Require­ments for IT” (BAIT) formulate concrete expec­ta­tions. Among other things, the Federal Financial Super­visory Authority (BaFin) has issued a guideline calling for the new function of the “Infor­mation Security Officer ” to be set up. He or she controls the infor­mation security process and reports directly to the management.

In cooper­ation with Bank-Verlag, SRC has already success­fully completed six certificate courses for the “Infor­mation Security Officer (ISB) for credit insti­tu­tions”. After the great response and the continuing demand, we are pleased that the Bank-Verlag has made another date possible for this four-day certificate course.

From 5 to 8 May 2020, you will once again have the oppor­tunity of further training in Cologne to become an “Infor­mation Security Officer (ISB) for credit insti­tu­tions”.

In a team with Heinrich Lottmann (TARGOBANK AG & Co. KGaA) and Alexandros Manakos (HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt AG) the SRC experts Dagmar Schoppe, Florian Schumann and Randolf Skerka will give a lecture on the norms and standards according to ISO and IT-Grund­schutz, as well as on all legal/regulatory require­ments relevant for you as an ISB. In addition, the topics IT Risks and Contin­gency Management as well as Business Conti­nuity Management will be discussed.

After passing the final exami­nation, you will receive the certificate “Infor­mation Security Officer for Credit Insti­tu­tions”.

On 4 May 2020 you will also have the optional oppor­tunity to acquire the basic IT knowledge required for the course in a one-day intensive seminar in Cologne prior to the event. This course deals with basics, terms, encryption and IT security techniques in infor­mation technology.

BarCamp “Infor­mation Security Management in Credit Insti­tu­tions” — 19 September 2019

In cooper­ation with SRC Security Research & Consulting GmbH, Bank-Verlag GmbH hosts a BarCamp on the subject of “Infor­mation Security Management in Credit Insti­tu­tions”. The event will take place on 19 September 2019 at the premises of Bank-Verlag in Cologne.

The Federal Financial Super­visory Authority (BaFin) has also defined the new function of the Infor­mation Security Officer with the “Banking Super­visory Require­ments for IT” (BAIT). He or she controls the infor­mation security process and reports directly to management. What this theory looks like in practice will be examined in more detail on 19 September at the BarCamp “Infor­mation Security Management in Credit Insti­tu­tions”.

The BarCamp Principle

A BarCamp is an open conference with practical workshops. The workshops serve the exchange and discussion among the partic­i­pants. At the beginning, the partic­i­pants themselves develop the contents and the agenda, which they then develop further. There are no prede­fined speakers or proce­dures to be found in a BarCamp. Instead, this principle relies on the (moderated) exchange of experience.

BarCamp “Infor­mation Security Management in Credit Insti­tu­tions

The BarCamp “Infor­mation Security Management in Credit Insti­tu­tions” gives Infor­mation Security Officers as well as all those respon­sible for infor­mation and IT security management at credit insti­tu­tions the oppor­tunity to exchange infor­mation on topics such as BAIT audits, service provider management or risk management. In addition, contacts can be estab­lished and expertise expanded. The coffee breaks can be used for individual discus­sions. At the end of the event, a “get-together” provides an in-depth exchange among the partic­i­pants.

The SRC Speakers

Four experts from different areas of SRC will share their knowledge and expertise with the partic­i­pants.

Sandro Amendola, deputy head of the evalu­ation body at SRC, is respon­sible for the topic “IT compliance in the banking industry”. In addition, he develops security concepts and security require­ments for payment trans­action proce­dures on behalf of the German banking industry, among others.

Jochen Schumacher is respon­sible for commu­ni­ca­tions at SRC. He concen­trates on product management, the technical and editorial support of the website as well as the planning, imple­men­tation and moder­ation of events.

Florian Schumann is Head of IT at SRC. In addition, he is an infor­mation security consultant and qualified auditor according to § 8 (a) BSIG for critical infra­struc­tures.

Dr. Deniz Ulucay works at SRC as a consultant for infor­mation security. His focus is on the devel­opment of ISMSs, in particular for operators of critical infra­struc­tures. He is also respon­sible for the devel­opment and imple­men­tation of security concepts.

PSD2

SRC expert Sandro Amendola contributes to the PSD2 conference meeting

Second EU Payment Services Directive PSD2 comes into force

Banken+Partner” expert panel on PSD2

The second EU Payment Services Directive PSD2 comes into force in January. The business policy, technical and regulatory need for action to be taken by credit insti­tu­tions is diverse and at the same time individual for each bank. Among other things, the insti­tu­tions will have to observe and implement stricter security require­ments for the authen­ti­cation of their customers and prove these to the national super­visory authority. For banks and Sparkassen as service providers and for customers as users, there is a risk that login and payment release will become more incon­ve­nient. At the same time, the interface must be imple­mented for access by autho­rised third parties.

SRC expert discusses complex challenges and evaluates solution approaches

SRC expert Sandro Amendola

Sandro Amendola, Division Manager at SRC Security Research & Consulting GmbH, was one of the experts at the table talk of “Banken+Partner”. Mr. Amendola discussed the oppor­tu­nities and challenges of the PSD2 and outlined possible solutions for banks and Sparkassen.

The challenges for banks and Sparkassen

An example of these challenges are the inter­faces for autho­rised third party providers, which PSD2 requires to be made available by banks. Another example is two-factor authen­ti­cation, which further enhances account access security. Increased security on the one hand is often not possible without making too great a sacrifice in terms of conve­nience and customer friend­liness on the other. The experts present also explained how this security can be achieved without loss of comfort or customers. Finally, the oppor­tu­nities that can be exploited through cooper­ation with the agile FinTechs were discussed.

Possible solutions for banks and Sparkassen

The entire expert discussion, as well as the topics and solutions, can be read in the free e‑paper from “Banken+Partner”. In addition, Sandro Amendola is available for individual workshops and consul­ta­tions on PSD2 and its impli­ca­tions.
