Adoption of technology has changed the contours of banking. The Core Banking Solutions (CBS) opened new vistas.
A customer no longer banks with a branch but with a bank. Banks, of today, have however moved beyond CBS and have embraced newer and emerging technologies like Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, etc.
These technologies have ushered in a metamorphosis of change in the Indian banking landscape and are considered to be a creative force. Nevertheless, these emerging technologies are not without their challenges. Cyber security assumes critical importance as in an internet-based banking environment, cyber frauds can happen with global footprints. Research covering the above emerging technologies may therefore prove to be highly beneficial for the banks.
In the above milieu, Indian Institute of Banking & Finance (IIBF) and Institute for Development & Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) have taken an initiative to jointly announce a “Research Fellowship in Banking Technology.”
The research fellowship in Banking Technology, a joint initiative of IIBF and IDRBT, aims to sponsor technically and economically feasible research projects which has the potential to contribute significantly to the Banking and Finance

- Cyber Security

Applicant research organizations/researchers are required to submit soft copy of the proposals in English MS Word file along with a brief bio-data highlighting their experience in conducting similar research and forwarding letter from the employer at email@example.com
