It’s been pretty busy at work the last few weeks. I’ve stated working through the new IT Officer’s Questionnaire that banks get before they have an IT exam. It’s not something that I’ve had to do for the exam, not official notice yet, but something I wanted to-do so I wouldn’t be crazy busy at the last minute. Before this new questionnaire came out I would have said that I would have been 95% ready at any minute for an exam, but this new one seemed to change so much. I’ve been busy gathering up lots of information and digesting it in to polices and procedures. Verbal policy and procedures are no longer good enough, they must be written, and I really do agree with that.
If I were starting a new position at a bank and being the IT Officer were my position, the first thing I would do is go through this questionnaire. I would be the quickest way to get a clear picture of what is going on especially if the person before you left very sparse documentation.
