On May 3rd, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council ("FFIEC") announced it has recently upgraded the functions and features of the InfoBase for the FFIEC Information Technology Examination Handbook ("IT Handbook"). The new architecture provides the FFIEC member agencies with new capabilities, including the ability to make updates on a more frequent basis. This new architecture will enable the agencies to respond to changes in technology and the risk environment on an as-needed basis rather than waiting for the next revision of a particular booklet or booklets. Included in the recent upgrade is a "What's New" function on the InfoBase home page that may be used to monitor recent changes and, going forward, to access a historical listing of all changes.
