Nigeria Financial Services Shared IT Infrastructure & IT Standards Programme

Also, contained in this blueprint is the IT Standards Governance Model and Processes, which details the binding framework of processes and procedures that will guide the introduction of new standards, review or modification of existing ones, and complete withdrawal of obsolete or irrelevant standards, thereby maintaining relevance and ensuring continuity by both CBN and other stakeholders.
This document is the property of the Central bank of Nigeria and its usage is restricted to members of the Shared Services Unit, the IT Standards Council, Nigerian Financial Services Industry and authorized accredited third party agents or consultants as CBN deems fit.
