Event Description

The Bank Protection Act (BPA) and the implementing regulations specify security officer requirements.  This program will focus on the BPA implementing regulations, especially on Regulation H, to demonstrate what your security program should contain.  Although the regulations are very specific, they allow leeway for risk-management decision-making.  This program will include industry-standard practices and demonstrate (with pictures) how to comply.  Security officer dos, don’ts, and best practices will be covered.  Other topics will include:

  1. Which staff members should be trained on security issues?
  2. When is help needed from law enforcement, regulators, or other security officers?
  3. Who needs to be trained on robbery issues?
  4. Should you use a case management system?
  5. Reporting to the board

This program is designed specifically for those who have little-to-no previous training in financial institution security.  However, it will be a great refresher for veteran security officers, too.  This program will satisfy the Security Officer training requirements.
