Webinar: Advanced BSA Officer Training: In-Depth Risk Issues & Difficult Situations
Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

The BSA world continues to evolve, and each day brings new challenges to BSA officers and financial institutions. While many components of BSA remain the same, regulators’ expectations regarding the BSA officer’s role in policing continue to grow. While some expectations can be met with software or monitoring techniques, others require significant effort. This webinar will focus on methods to identify and control risk and use real-life scenarios to explain what can happen with difficult BSA situations. (Note: Participants should already understand BSA requirements; specifics of the regulation will not be covered.)

  • Managing the risks you identify
  • Ways to improve BSA program quality
  • Businesses and other entities that require the majority of BSA attention
  • Real-life difficult scenarios – lessons learned
    • Manual will provide a road map to identify and manage BSA risk and other tools to improve BSA performance
    • Employee training log
    • Quiz to measure staff learning and a separate answer key


This informative session is designed for experienced BSA professionals. Other staff members with significant BSA skills or responsibilities, such as management and auditors, will also benefit.
