Summary:
The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has issued an updated Retail Payment Systems booklet. The booklet is part of the IT Examination Handbook series and serves as guidance for examiners, financial institutions, and service providers on identifying and controlling risks related to retail payment systems and related banking activities.

  • The booklet also discusses several emerging payment technologies, including:
      o Decoupled debit cards
      o Stored value cards
      o Account-to-account services
