The FFIEC recently reminded all financial institutions about the need to actively manage the risks associated with interbank messaging and wholesale payment networks. Recent high-profile, successful cyber-attacks on international wire transfers will raise examiners’ expectations for your security system and risk monitoring of international and domestic wire transfers. This session will address areas where enhanced monitoring, procedures, and risk assessments may be necessary. Join us to learn about “wire hack” cases and best practices to mitigate this risk.
