CBN releases IT standards for banks

17 January 2014, 10:04

Lagos - The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) says it has released Information Technology (IT) standards to commercial banks to ensure quality service delivery in the banking system.

In a circular to all banks, CBN said the standards were in pursuant to the need to identify and adopt global IT standards for Nigerian banks.

 The standards would serve as reference points to ensure quality IT service delivery through Infrastructure Transformation programme

The circular added that the blueprints for the standards and the framework had been defined and released for adoption pending the completion and launch of the Bankers’ Committee IT Standards Portal.

The apex bank said that the IT Standard Council would be reconstituted after two years and would drive the adoption, implementation and compliance to IT standards in the banking industry.

The circular said that the compliance audit would begin at the end of the prescribed periods as indicated on the implementation roadmap.

It said that the baseline assessment for ‘priority 1’ standards should be carried out in banks in first quarter of 2014.
