Mastering the Basics - Webinar Only

This workshop is perfect for the BSA Officer who is new to the position or for BSA compliance staff who serve as backup to the BSA Officer. We will cover all areas needed to gain a good understanding of the roles and responsibilities of this position, including proper CTR and SAR completion, writing of comprehensive SAR narratives, procedures for exempting customers from currency transaction reporting and annual review requirements, 314(a) verification requirements, CIP verification and monitoring, including compliance with the Beneficial Ownership Rule, high-risk monitoring and much more.

BSA – Advanced Topics and Emerging Trends - Onsite and Webinar 

BSA compliance is about not just properly completing regulatory reports, but also being aware of the emerging trends that face the banking industry. This workshop is designed to be a higher-level overview of the day-to-day responsibilities of the BSA Officer and is dedicated to those high-risk pressing issues that worry you the most. We will cover the areas needed to provide you a good understanding of your roles and responsibilities and what examiner expectations are of this position, including:

• BSA roundup – discussing what’s new since last year
• Updates to the Beneficial Ownership Rule requirement, including addressing frequently asked questions and answering participant questions
• CIP requirements for entities and fiduciary accounts, including compliance with the Beneficial Ownership Rule
• Banking hemp growers, manufacturers and distributors
• Identification of common customer scams
• Combating employee fraud
• Regulatory enforcement actions

All participants will receive a copy of the Wipfli BSA Policy and gain an understanding of what a comprehensive written program should include. Sessions will be interactive, with ample opportunity for questions and answers about your most pressing BSA concerns.
