Join us for our Emergency Survival Guide Webinar: The Executive’s Guide to Co-Managed IT, as Banking Executives share their knowledge to help fellow banks thrive in this new paradigm.

Learn from these experts as they explain a NEW approach to IT support, scaled to match your needs, without the expense and hassle of hiring a large in-house IT department.

EH National Bank - Leslie Amberger, EVP/Chief Risk Officer
Nano Banc - Bill Wilson, Chief Risk Officer
Central Bank - Nancy Pavlas, EVP/CTO/Operations Manager
Reliable IT - Aaron Biehl, COO

It takes a small army to run your IT department.

The complexity of IT systems, combined with the growth of your bank and increase in regulatory requirements continues to rise. Many IT departments deal with being understaffed or lacking specialized knowledge in many areas such as data backup and disaster recovery, cybersecurity protections, secure cloud computing, complex database management, and more.

No one IT person can know it all or do it all.

Co-managed IT is NOT about replacing your IT department, but rather a flexible “Partnership” that fills in the gaps, supports your needs, and gives you far superior IT support and security at a much lower cost.

Our Panel of Banking Executives will explain how to utilize Co-Managed IT to cut costs and benefit your bank.
