The Bank Protection Act (BPA) and implementing regulations specify security officer requirements. This program will focus on the BPA implementing regulations, especially on Regulation H, to explain what your security program should contain. Although the regulations are very specific, they allow leeway for risk-management decision-making. This program will include industry-standard practices and demonstrate (with photos) how to comply. Security officer dos, don’ts, and best practices will be covered. Other topics will include:

  • How often staff should be trained on security
  • How new equipment like cash recyclers change training strategies
  • The training back office staff should receive (it is different from the frontline)
  • How frequently the security officer should receive specialized training, like active shooter
  • Factors the security officer should consider when evaluating equipment or training
