National bank regulator names overseer of operational risk, including in bank tech, cybersecurity

Oversight of policy and exam procedures related to operational risk will be the role of Kevin Greenfield at the federal regulator of national banks, the agency said Thursday.

In the new role as deputy comptroller for operational risk, said the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Greenfield will also oversee bank information technology, cybersecurity, critical infrastructure resilience, payments systems, and corporate and risk governance.

Greenfield takes the position formerly held by Beth Dugan, who is now a deputy comptroller for large bank supervision. Greenfield will take the new position this month, the OCC said.

He previously served as the OCC’s director for bank information technology for the agency’s operational risk division, where he managed a team responsible for developing, communicating, and interpreting policies for the OCC’s supervision of technology operations at financial institutions. Prior to that, he spent 14 years with the agency’s large bank supervision unit, examining large and complex technology operations at several of the largest U.S. financial institutions based in Pittsburgh, Charlotte, and New York City.

A graduate of the University of Dayton, Greenfield holds the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) professional certification.
