New Release: FFIEC IT Management Handbook
On November 10, 2015, the FFIEC released a revised IT Management Handbook that outlines the principles for IT governance and explains how IT risk management relates to enterprise-wide risk management and governance.

  • Governance
    • Roles and Responsibilities
