Although financial institutions have been managing BSA operations as per the regulatory requirements, the change in focus to appropriate BSA/AML/OFAC risk assessment has become increasingly important. Regulators look to the organization for insurance and evidence that BSA operations are appropriately performing risk assessments. Appropriate risk assessments are essential in an organization’s strategic planning and development, as well as ensuring compliance with laws and regulations.
This Bank Secrecy Act risk assessment seminar will highlight BSA best practices that are being acknowledged and recognized by regulators and examiners and will discuss each risk assessment area. Attendees will learn how to conduct a comprehensive review of their current organization’s BSA/AML/OFAC risk assessment.
Key goals of this BSA risk assessment course are:
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 risk assessment policies and procedures along with monitoring programs, training programs, and qualified employees overseeing the BSA daily operations and independent testing. An effective BSA risk assessment program will ensure that all areas are being evaluated for risk appropriately and being monitored on a routine basis. However, to accomplish this, your financial institution must not only have the appropriate risk assessment procedures in place, but also be performing them correctly.
