Rapid technological changes in recent years have revolutionized the way banking services and products are delivered to Corporates and Consumers alike, so much so that keeping up with these changes is like trying to tame a tiger. We are all familiar with how the Internet, the cell-phone, Smartcards and even ATMs have changed our lives. These changes have dramatically modified and in some cases increased some of the traditional risks associated with banking activities, in particular strategic, operational, legal and reputational risks. In turn this has influenced the overall risk profile of banking.

This course is a penetrating introduction to risk management for Electronic Banking (eBanking) activities. It is intended to move the participants beyond a simple understanding of the eBanking products & services, and into an understanding of risk management and mitigation of this ever evolving sphere of business.


Electronic banking carries its own unique characteristics, which increases and modifies some of the traditional risks associated with banking activities.  These characteristics include;

  • Extraordinary speed of change related to technological and customer service innovation
  • Universal and global nature of open electronic networks
  • Integration of electronic banking applications with legacy computer systems, and
  • Increasing dependence of banks on third parties that provide the necessary information technology on which electronic banking depends.

According to all relevant regulatory bodies, it is incumbent upon the Boards of Directors and banks' senior management to take steps to ensure that their institutions have reviewed and modified where necessary their existing risk management policies and processes to cover their current or planned electronic banking activities.

What this course covers

This course examines how the traditional risk profile has shifted and focuses on these changes and what needs to be done to effectively implement an efficient operational risk regime that includes all the required controls. In essence, we examine how to tame this tiger known as electronic banking.
