Technology Network

Industry trends for technology have created a constantly changing landscape for community banks. In recent years, cyber security, core processing, and vendor management have all become hot topics among our members, especially as regulators have ramped up their oversight for IT.

Bank technology managers who participate in ICBM’s Technology Network come together to collaborate and to discuss specific technology challenges and solutions and to learn best practices from one another.

The Technology Network is open exclusively to the employees of BankIn Minnesota bank members. It is an opportunity for member banks’ technology professionals to share ideas and best practices.
