Technology risk management tools are similar to those suggested for operational risk management.

Example of Technology Risk:

  • Security and Privacy
  • Information technology operations.
  • Business systems control and effectiveness.
  • Business continuity management.
  • Information system testing.
  • Reliability and performance management.
  • Information technology asset management.
  • Project risk management.

  • Financial assets are essentially information assets.

2. The growing threat of cybercrime.
3. Legal and regulatory requirements for safeguarding customer information.
