BOC Recognised for Contribution to GRC Sector
ISACA Sri Lanka chapter, at its 51st AGM, recognised Bank of Ceylon for the contribution made to the GRC (Governance, Risk and Control) sector locally and internationally for the second consecutive time.
ISACA (Information System Audit and Control Association) is a US-based professional association focused on IT governance. ISACA provides its members with knowledge, credentials, training and networking in IT audit, governance, risk, controls and security. Founded in 1969 and now serves 165,000+ professionals in 180 countries through 250+ local chapters worldwide.
ISACA Sri Lanka chapter consists of 250+ professional members from different sectors of the nation. Popularity and recognition of ISACA Sri Lanka chapter has increased with its active presence in IT for past years.
ISACA awards seven different categories and certifications for GRC professionals to achieve, including its leading certificate CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) and CISM (Certified Information Security Manager) and many more.
The Bank of Ceylon has set high standards and is professional. The Bank recognised the need to adapt to rapid change in the technology environment and embracing new technology to address the needs of the new generation. The Bank is also well aware of the risk involved with new technology and therefore has invested on capacity building of its employees and in delivering a professional service to customers.
The contribution of the Bank of Ceylon to the GRC sector is enhanced by its capability of producing new professionals to the sector each year and BOC has so far introduced a dozen of IS Auditors to the country becoming the national organisation with the highest number of ISACA professional credential holders. This was achieved by BOC for the second consecutive year.
The recognition award was handed over to the Chief Internal Auditor of Bank of Ceylon by the Past President of ISACA Sri Lanka chapter in the presence of chapter officials and professional members from different sectors including public and private Banks and other organisations in Sri Lanka via online.
