As we transition to a new online membership platform, CBAO will not be processing online orders from September 21-30. Please call our office at (614) 846.8124 to register for a webinar or an event. Thank you!

A list of upcoming events is presented below:

Event Description

The Bank Protection Act requires the security officer to provide annual reports to the board on the “implementation, administration, and effectiveness of the security program.”  What does this entail?  Are regulatory requirements the only concern?  Is the report discoverable if the bank is sued?  Although some banks are satisfied if regulators don’t take issue with the board report or security program, a lawsuit against the bank will quickly illustrate whether key items are missing.  Remember that the annual security report may reach a much larger audience than the board.

Join this webinar to learn how to prepare the annual report and how to present it with skill and diplomacy.  In addition, learn about the physical security aspects of foreseeable events that should be reported and how keeping good records simplifies reporting.  Security officers will garner valuable resources that can provide statistics, facts, and information to reduce bank liability.


  • How to report foreseeable events that could bring criminal liability against the board
  • Content of annual board report 
  • Presenting major problems to the board with limited time
  • Why security officers should report to the board in person

Take-Away Toolkit:

  • Sample top sheet and annual board report
  • Special report form
  • Incident report form and security tips
  • Employee training log
  • Quiz you can administer to measure staff learning and a separate answer key
