SDBA Annual Security Seminar

October 30, 2018

Hilton Garden Inn - Sioux Falls Downtown



This well-rounded seminar focuses on a range of issues of concern to security officers, facility personnel, and management. Using current trends and examples, the topics covered will cover a variety of topics as highlighted below:                      

What Am I Responsible For?

The Bank Protection Act and the implementing regulations specify the requirements for the Security Officer. This program will focus on implementing regulations for the Bank Protection Act, specifically on Regulation H, to demonstrate the framework of what your bank security program should contain. The implementing regulations are very specific, while allowing leeway for risk management decision-making. Know exactly what you should be doing, not relying on what others think you should be doing.

The Dangers of Social Engineering

This program reviews techniques to protect your institution from the dangers of downloading unknown files, information security, and deceptive answers. Social Engineering is the method used by penetration companies and criminals to compromise the financial institution. This program will discuss the modus operandi used to attack account holders, the institution, or call center into providing sensitive information. We will review problems with locating your terminals or PCs where a non- staff member can gain access without anyone knowing. Even a small institution is not safe from these techniques. We will instruct staff on how not to fall victim to a social engineering attack, what a deceptive answer really sounds like, and how to handle these attacks on your front line or call center.

15 Errors to Avoid When Conducting Internal Investigations

Internal fraud can cost financial institutions unrecoverable money and time. When the embezzler hasn’t been identified, emotions run high! Investigations launched in panic with the wrong leaders may cause unexpected complications. This eye-opening presentation will explain what not to do. Staff who have not been trained on internal embezzlement may cause flawed investigations, harassment charges, and unsolved losses. This program will explain 15 errors that can result in a failed investigation. Awareness of these pitfalls will enable your institution to establish an action plan that will protect you when the unthinkable happens.

Board Reporting: The Security Perspective

Regulations specify that the Security Officer must report to the board annually and that the implementation, administration, and effectiveness of the security program be addressed. What exactly the Security Officer should report to the board is not clearly identified in the regulations. This interactive session will review best practices relating to training, inspections, and foreseeable events that should be reported to your board.
