The implementing regulations of the Bank Protection Act require the security officer to report annually to the board on the “implementation, administration, and effectiveness of the security program.” What does this entail? Should the security officer report to the board in person? Although the regulation is silent on that issue, this thought-provoking webinar will explain that meeting regulatory requirements isn’t the only concern. The report should be viewed as a discoverable document in court proceedings if the bank is sued for a security issue.

This webinar will explain the physical security aspects of foreseeable events that should be reported to the board, and how to keep records that will make board reporting easier. Many bankers are satisfied if regulators don’t take issue with the board report or the security program. However, don’t wait for a lawsuit against the security officer, management, and the board (both jointly and individually) to learn the report was missing key items. Information that could help during litigation is very different than what regulators examine for compliance.

Join us to understand what will happen with the report if litigation is brought against the board and the security officer for a security incident. Learn how to prepare the written report, how to present it, and what should be reported annually. Your security officer will garner valuable resources that can provide statistics, facts, and reduce liability.
