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. However, secure and efficient IT is also absolutely essential for the economic success of a credit institution.
The new “Banking Supervisory 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 management.
In cooperation with Bank-Verlag, SRC has already successfully offered three certificate courses to become an “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 for this four-day certificate course possible.
From 6 to 9 November 2018, you will again have the opportunity to receive further training in Cologne to become an “Information Security Officer (ISB) for credit institutions”.
