This webinar will highlight current and potential BSA hot topics and areas of interest that are being acknowledged and recognized by regulators and examiners. It will look at these areas and the specifics of each area as it pertains to BSA.
Why Should You Attend:
Although financial institutions have been managing BSA operations per the regulatory requirements, the change in focus to BSA audits has become increasingly important. Regulators look to the bank for insurance and evidence that BSA operations are being appropriately completed. Having the knowledge of the hot topics and areas of concerns that auditors and regulators lookout for will aid in ensuring the institution is BSA/AML compliant.
"BSA/AML Hot Topics" will highlight the evolution of BSA audit best practices. The areas of focus outlined in this webinar are based on best industry practice, supervisory experience, and cover the major components of an effective BSA program that auditors and regulators focus on.
Areas Covered in the Webinar:
Who Will Benefit:
Financial institutions are required to be compliant with BSA rules and regulations. Such compliance needs to be well documented and consistent to ensure financial institutions avoid BSA violations and implications. Financial institutions’ BSA programs must have adequate policies and procedures, comprehensive risk assessments, monitoring programs, training programs, qualified employees overseeing the BSA daily operations, and independent testing programs. An effective BSA Program is proactive in being aware of the hot topics and areas of interest that regulators and auditors are focusing on. Being aware of these will allow an institution to be proactive in its BSA efforts and plan accordingly to overcome any potential issues and prepare for future changes.
