WASHINGTON (11/12/15)--Federal regulators released a substantially revised management booklet Tuesday, part of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s (FFIEC) Information Technology Handbook.
According to the FFIEC, the management booklet is designed to outline the principles of sound governance, and more specifically, information technology (IT) governance. The booklet explains how IT risk management relates to enterprise-wide risk management and governance.
