FFIEC IT exam handbooks available online only
WASHINGTON (5/8/12)--The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) announced it will no longer print hard copies of its IT Examination Handbooks, opting instead to make IT handbook content available in an electronic format only.

The IT Handbook consists of 11 booklets covering a variety of technology and technology-related risk management guidance for financial institutions and examiners, according to the FFIEC.

"In addition to reducing costs and saving resources, users will now have the ability to select the materials they wish to print–from a single page to the entire booklet," the FFIEC said in a release.

The change is prompted in part by recent upgrades to the functions and features of the FFIEC's online InfoBase. The FFIEC said it has improved the InfoBase to allow more frequent updates. Those updates can be viewed in a new "What's New" section of the FFIEC InfoBase website.

The InfoBase improvements will enable the FFIEC's partner 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," the FFIEC said.
