Seize the opportunity for this expert training for new security officers.

Everyone has to start somewhere – even security officers. They are foundational to the safety of each financial institution and training is essential to their success. This practical program will address the security officer’s role, best practices, regulatory compliance, physical security issues, and more.

  • Understand lighting, landscaping, locations, and locks – the four Ls of security
  • Know the proper steps to take with cash recyclers and ITMs
  • Explain to management the need for an annual risk assessment

If you have been the security officer for less than three years or have been newly assigned, this is the webinar for you. If you have been the security officer for many years, this will be a great refresher on your position’s requirements. Join us to learn about regulations, industry-standard practices, and pointers on how to report to the board. 

This program will focus on the implementing regulations for the Bank Protection Act (BPA), specifically on Regulation H, to demonstrate the framework of 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 pictures) how to comply.
