TRAINING ON CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND LEADERSHIP IN BANKS AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

A. INTRODUCTION

Banking Institutions face increased competition from other financial service providers, increased regulatory compliance requirements, financial and technological innovations and emerging risks that include cybersecurity and third party risks. Board members, Executives and Senior Management staff serve an important role in the leadership and oversight of the institutions they govern as banking institutions go through these cycles.
