Course description

ICB Credit: 2.5 CRCM

Whether your institution is considering making the jump from manual reports and spreadsheets to an automated monitoring system or you have a system that you have been using for years, this webinar will have something for you.

We will not endorse one vendor over another, but we will discuss the key components of your vendor management program that can help make sure you pick the system that is best suited for your institution. Every system has its limitations. We will cover steps you can take to identify and document these limitations so that you can develop procedures for monitoring activity that your system does not.

Your vendor may make recommendations for customizing system settings, but the responsibility for the system's accuracy in identifying suspicious activity ultimately rests with the institution. Using current guidance we will give you tips for analyzing your customer's activity to help establish system parameters.

Strong policies and procedures establish accountability for maintaining and operating an AMS. Who manages alerts? What is the appropriate timetable for reviewing alerts? How are alert resolutions documented? We will address examiner expectations and best practices.

Once your system is up and running, examiners will expect that the system is independently validated in order to ensure that the model is reasonably designed based on the unique risks of your institution. We will cover the current guidance to help you know what to expect during a validation and what questions your examiners may ask.

  • Vendor Management
  • System Implementation
  • Model Policy
  • GAP Analysis
  • Customer risk rating settings
  • Rule Settings
