The Information Technology (IT) Conference is directed at IT examiners and safety-and-soundness examiners with IT examination responsibility as identified by each agency.
The Information Technology (IT) Conference is designed to update financial institution examiners on current and prospective developments in the area of IT, systems controls, and security. Speakers for this program are nationally recognized industry leaders and, occasionally, senior staff members from regulatory agencies.

- evaluate effective risk management of current trends in IT operations, data security, and cybersecurity in a financial institution.
The Information Technology Conference length may vary, but is likely to be three days. The event may be followed by separate regulatory agency breakouts organized by the respective agency. The normal conference day is eight hours of lecture and discussions.
