Webinar: New BSA Officer Training: Requirements & Real-Life Scenarios
Tuesday, September 11, 2018, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

The BSA officer is often on the front line of defense. Being a BSA officer requires technical knowledge, the ability to navigate and negotiate among entities within the organization, and the capability to deal with auditors and regulators. This webinar will provide a general overview of BSA requirements and examine real-life scenarios. Participants will learn to identify which areas of their institution require further research and which are well in hand. Day-to-day, operational, and other critical issues a new BSA officer needs to know will be addressed.


  • The BSA officer’s reality
  • Risk assessment overview
  • Requirements of CTRs and SARs
  • Permissible sharing of information between financial institutions – USA PATRIOT Act Sections 314(a) and 314(b)
  • Customer/member due diligence and enhanced due diligence
  • Real requirements of a solid BSA review
  • Navigating the BSA players within the institution
    • Manual will provide additional information and resources far beyond the information addressed and will provide a roadmap to navigate BSA requirements
    • Employee training log
    • Quiz you can administer to measure staff learning and a separate answer key


This informative session is designed for BSA officers who are relatively new. More experienced BSA officers will find the information a good refresher, as well as management and any personnel who work with BSA.
