  6. Investigate Enterprise Risk Management Applications
  7. Vendor Management Applications
  8. Respond to New Guidances:  Social Media Guidance, Third Party Management Guidance, rumors of guidance on portable device security.
  9. Addressing Windows Upgrade Issues:  XP Retirement, what to do about Windows 8?
  10. Debit card fraud protection
  11. Update Branchless Banking Strategy
  12. EVM Planning and Preparation / ATM Upgrades for EVM Chip
