The conference was devoted to sharing experience in effective management of operational risk in banks and implementation of information technology in this field, this states the press service of Piraeus Bank with reference to the Extra Consulting’s official website.

As commented S.Naumov during the panel discussion, about the return of confidence to banks we discuss for 8 years. I think confidence will return in any case. Though there is still no alternative to the banks deposits. At the same time, the National Bank undertakes steps that will recover reliability towards banking system. Cleaning the banking market from the banks with unpure business model – one of the steps. The capitalization of the banking sector – the second. The liberalization of currency legislation, the removal of restrictions – third. If all these measures wil be comprehensively implemented, reliability to the banking sector would return, although, of course, many factors lay outside the National Bank’s influence’.
