BSA is comprised of four pillars:

  1. Designated BSA officer
  2. Development of internal policies, procedures, and controls
  3. Annual training of all employees and the board
  4. Independent testing and review

This webinar will provide the necessary tools to address the fourth pillar. Do you understand the scope and procedures necessary to ensure a comprehensive, risk-based audit program? This webinar will ensure your BSA audit is comprehensive and meets regulatory guidelines (whether you are conducting the audit or are the BSA officer monitoring whether a strong audit is performed).

This webinar will include resources to effectively test the adequacy of your BSA program. It will include a review of your BSA risk assessment and risk profile, the adequacy of the identification of higher-risk accountholders and transactions, and transaction testing of monitoring systems.
