Join Barack Ferrazzano Financial Institutions Group partner and Regulatory Section leader John M. Geiringer for the American Bankers Association's (ABA) 90-minute webinar "Risk Assessments 101 For Community & Midsize Banks" on Thursday, April 11.

Although at one time limited to anti-money laundering (AML) and Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) protocols, risk assessments are now used across bank operations and business lines, including lending, information security, and consumer privacy. Coincidently, supervisory and compliance expectations for risk assessments are increasing for institutions of all sizes.

Many institutions are needing to train staff across business lines to identify data, produce supporting evidence and reference materials, and complete assessments, either as project leads or as part of a collaborative team.

During this 90-minute interactive webinar, you will learn how to adopt, implement, and complete a general risk assessment for your bank’s compliance program. The same approach can be used across bank operations to produce an assessment of risk for cybersecurity, consumer privacy (GDPR)/CCPA), or fair lending, third-party due diligence reviews, as well as other compliance areas.

The session will conclude with an important and often missed component of a risk assessment: integrating the lessons learned into your banking operations as revisions to your policies, procedures, departmental memos, and governance documents. Although the focus will be on completing risk assessments at community and midsize institutions, the approach is relevant to any institution needing to produce effective, efficient, and consistent risk assessments when time, funding, and personnel is limited.
