Aug 15, 2017 03:00pm -
Aug 15, 2017 04:30pm

Event Description

Deposit operations staff must have effective, ongoing training to support several critical BSA requirements.  This webinar will focus on three areas that are focal points of transaction testing sections of the BSA exam process.  Real-life examples of suspicious activities detected by deposit operations staff will be included, along with practical tips for processing and protecting the confidentiality of time-sensitive 314(a) requests.  In addition, examiners have been closely monitoring CIP compliance and many financial institutions have been surprised by the findings.  This session will include examples of CIP deficiencies in recent BSA enforcement actions and provide additional monitoring tools for deposit operations staff.
