Risk Management Training Program - Information Technology Examination Course

Last Updated: July 21, 2022

Program Overview

Participants take part in a series of case studies and lectures designed to reinforce concepts and techniques that will enhance an examiner's ability to assess a financial institution's technology risk. Case studies focus on identification of technology risks and potential mitigation strategies along with the business consequences for failure to properly mitigate these risks. The course is not intended to fully cover all aspects of the Information Technology Risk Examination (InTREx) program and associated work programs.

Key Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to analyze an institution's information security program and information technology risk management practices and draw meaningful conclusions, including assignment of component and composite URSIT ratings.

Instructional Format

A combination of self-paced reading assignments, facilitated virtual classroom discussion, and virtual group activities.


This is a two week course.
