The Institutes' mission is to promote industry professionalism and best practices by
developing and administering certification programs in an objective and reliable
manner that brings value to the industry.


The new Basel Accord (Basel II , or "International Convergence of Capital
Measurement and Capital Standards - A Revised Framework") , is an effort by
international banking supervisors to update the original international bank capital
accord (Basel I), which has been in effect since 1988.

After Basel II, there is a fundamental change in the way banking organizations
manage risks, view their data management needs and invest in IT.

In order to comply with Basel ii, banks and financial organizations must:

1. Understand what is different after Basel II.

2. Decide the approach (basic or more advanced).

3. Rely heavily on IT professionals. There is an increased impact of IT on
operations and performance of financial institutions. There are major changes in the
job description of IT and Information Security professionals across the world.

4. Rely heavily on IT systems. Data warehousing and data mining solutions are
absolutely necessary to collect historical data and loss data, to build models, to
move from a basic to an advanced approach.

5. Explain what is Basel ii to everyone in their organization.
