2009 may be the Year of the Webinar.
In ISMG's recent Banking Confidence survey, 76% of respondents said when it comes to training in 2009, their preferred method will be webinars and other computer-based offerings.
Mindful of that preference, ISMG now is issuing its first annual webinar training catalog - a guidebook to the key topics and expert instructors featured in the many premium and scheduled webinars available to registrants in the new year.
From regulatory compliance to risk management, governance to information technology, these sessions are run by industry experts and offer hands-on advice that registrants can apply on the job - and to enhance their own careers.
"Since day one, we've seen a crying need for training programs for banking and security leaders to help them cope with their day-to-day jobs, as well as with new regulatory requirements that always emerge," says Mike D'Agostino, ISMG's Marketing Director. "We believe our webinars give these leaders the chance to maximize their training opportunities - and dollars - without having to even leave their offices."
At a time when even training dollars can be hard to come by, ISMG's webinar programs are built on this value proposition:
- Relevant Topics - from anti-money laundering to the Identify Theft Red Flags Rule to vendor management, the webinars are grounded in today's top priorities for banking institutions.
- Expert Instructors - banking practitioners, industry thought-leaders and even the banking regulatory agencies themselves form the pool from which ISMG selects its webinar presenters. Each strives not just to impart expertise, but to do so in a hands-on way that the registrants can walk away with immediate action items to apply.
- Discounted Membership - on their own, when compared to the expense of traveling to a conference or hiring an onsite instructor, ISMG's webinars show demonstrable cost-savings. But with either an individual or corporate webinar membership, registrants can pay just one annual fee to attend unlimited sessions over the course of a year.
