Bank Security Management Seminar


Who Should Attend

This program is for all bank security officers, security analysts, fraud investigators, risk managers, auditors, compliance officers.

Program Overview

The following topics will be discussed at this seminar:



The Four L’s of Physical Security
Is that beautiful, flowering tree blocking sight lines to your entry? How long has that lightbulb been burnt out?  This session will review inexpensive and effective changes you can implement immediately to make sure your facility is safe and secure. The session will review exterior security concerns such as landscaping, lighting, location, and locks. We will also review building design flaws and how to correct them and discuss why a night inspection program is essential.

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.

Computer Security and Social Engineering for the Non-Techie
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.

You’re Doing What? The Future Is Now, So How Do You Survive
This interactive session reviews problems financial institutions are facing with new technologies, operational changes, and working with law enforcement. We will familiarize you with teller pods, cash recyclers, cash dispensing devices, and automated interactive tellers. These new devices provide the security officer, management, and staff with new problems to resolve... among them how to design your lobby, operational changes, and security procedures that must be reviewed.
