BSA Model Validation - Are You Talking To Me?

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

In 2011 the OCC and Federal Reserve issued guidance called "Supervisory Guidance on Model Risk Management," and it has become ear-splittingly clear over the last five years that all banks, regardless of size or regulator, which use an automated transaction monitoring system, are expected to undergo an independent, periodic validation of their monitoring system to ensure it's not "garbage in, garbage out."

Your bank needs to show your auditors and regulatory agencies that your transaction monitoring software accurately and comprehensively aggregates and monitors transactions of your customers, and performs as intended in detecting suspicious activity, as well as adequately risk rating, both at account opening and on an ongoing basis, the risks associated with the customer relationship and also at the account level.

There were numerous BSA enforcement actions in 2016, and a common theme was the deficiencies, or omissions, concerning banks' model validation processes and the knowledge base of those responsible for overseeing such systems. Most Compliance and BSA personnel deal with laws and regulations, rather than algorithms and quantitative analysis, and struggle with the concept of how to properly ensure the model is producing intended results – and whether to file a SAR or not.

This webinar will provide a level of knowledge that key bank personnel can use to oversee the validation process and ensure your bank meets regulatory and audit expectations.

Covered Topics:

  • Data validation vs model validation and how they interact
  • Accuracy in risk rating/ranking of relationships and accounts
  • Validation engagement letter, scope, work-papers and final report
  • Independence considerations for in house model validations
  • Background and experience of internal or external personnel conducting validation
  • Ensuring that data collected and loaded into the monitoring software is accurate and comprehensive
  • Core, host and other systems that feed into the data stream
  • Corrective action follow-up to any identified deficiencies or gaps
  • Model data input, processing and reporting methodology and expectations
  • Impact upon SARs, CTRs, CDD and EDD
  • System utilization for initial Customer Risk Profile and ongoing monitoring; and
  • Differences in Rules Based vs Behavior Based parameters and efficiencies.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
