Program Overview: 

PDF Brochure

This one day program is designed to assist bank directors and executive management with carrying out their duties and responsibilities. Directors and management make a pledge to “Enhance/Increase Shareholder Value”. This commitment is at the heart of the fiduciary responsibilities. This class explores the relationship between Bank Directors, Management, Regulators, Customers, Employees, and Shareholders. As banking is a very regulated business, we will cover the many requirements that directors face on a day to day basis. The perfect director is described as being Knowledgeable and active.

Banks are using more technology than ever before, and it’s creating a world of cyber-insecurity. This is causing regulators to focus more on information technology issues and to expect more oversight from the bank’s C-level executives and the board. With only one in five bank directors confident of his or her knowledge when it comes to managing cybersecurity risks, more and more banks need help and guidance. This session will focus on cybersecurity trends and offer helpful tips on how Bank Directors can use their existing knowledge and experience to effectively manage these risks.

The program employs the use of lecture, case studies, and industry updates. The primary focus is on the HOW to be a good director. Regulators are increasingly holding directors responsible for the Safety & Soundness and Performance of the bank. The safety & soundness concept is rooted in the concept of Risk Management (Asset Quality, Liquidity, Interest Rate, and Operational).
