We are partnering with SBS CyberSecurity to bring our members the Certified Banking Security Manager Training. SBS's certified advantage helps you develop an entire information security program framework to take back to your institution. After competing this program, attendees will understand how to successfully implement and manage each component of the information security program, and their knowledge of layered security programs will be boosted. Attendees will gain confidence in their decision making after learning comprehensive cybersecurity knowledge. In addition, they will dive into FFIEC cybersecurity guidelines. 

Specific topics include: 

  • U.S. Information Security Laws and Regulations
  • Information Security Program Components
  • Security & Awareness Programs
  • IT Audit 
  • Social Engineering
  • Preparing for IT Examinations
  • Running Effective IT & Audit Committees

This program should be attended by Managers, ISOs, Security Officers, Auditors, Operations Officers, IT Managers and anyone in Compliance. This is a must attend program! Below is a testimonial to this program and instructor, Chad Knutson: 

"SBS and Chad helped me by providing the tools and information to be successful in reporting, documenting and creating proper assessments. As well as how to structure an adequate BIA and BCP plan, and those things necessary to prepare for an Audit or Exam. Taking the course helped build my confidence in my job field. I would recommend the CBSM course to anyone wishing to enhance their knowledge of the expectations of the IT Program of their institution."
