Don’t let poor policies and procedures be your undoing. Expand your knowledge of RDC and learn how to implement the right policies and procedures to reduce your risk.


  • Distinguish the parties involved in the remote deposit capture (RDC) process and the responsibilities of each
  • Identify the risks and potential liability to your institution from remote deposit and mobile devices
  • Implement prudent policies and procedures to reduce the risk to your institution
  • Understand the agreements/disclosures that are legally required, and the additional agreements/disclosures that will provide added protection for your institution
  • Explain the differences between remote deposit capture, remotely created checks, and imaged cash letters


You already know how remote deposit capture works, but do you understand the associated risks? This webinar will explain the legal side of RDC, including the potential liability to your institution. It also will analyze the legal agreements you should be using and the disclosures you should be making regarding remote deposit capture. RDC technology is easy compared to the legal aspects involved.
