Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

The Five Pillars Of BSA
This training session covers the core components of a compliant BSA program.


#1 Internal Controls Checkup:
  • How do we identify banking operations (i.e., products, services, customers, entities, and geographic locations) more vulnerable to abuse by money launderers and criminals; provide for periodic updates to the financial institutionís risk profile; and provide for a BSA/AML compliance program tailored to manage risks?
  • When do we inform the board of directors, or a committee thereof, and senior management, of compliance initiatives, identified compliance deficiencies, and corrective action taken, and notify directors and senior management of SARs filed?
  • What regulatory recordkeeping and reporting requirements meet recommendations for BSA/AML compliance, and provide for timely updates in response to changes in regulations?
  • When do we provide for adequate supervision of employees that handle currency transactions, complete reports, grant exemptions, monitor for suspicious activity, or engage in any other activity covered by the BSA and its implementing regulations?
  • Who should incorporate BSA compliance into the job descriptions and performance evaluations of the financial institutionís personnel, as appropriate?
#2 Independent Testing Checkup:
  • How to check the overall adequacy and effectiveness of the BSA/AML compliance program.
  • What is our audit supposed to review? Which of these are important?
  • Suspicious activity monitoring reports
  • Large currency aggregation reports
  • Monetary instrument records
  • Funds transfer records
  • Nonsufficient funds (NSF) reports
  • Large balance fluctuation reports
  • Account relationship reports
#3 BSA Compliance Officer Checkup:
  • Who should have responsibilities for BSA?
  • What should the title be? What qualifications do you have to have?
#4 Training Checkup:
  • Who must be trained in BSA? What must each employee be trained on? How often?
  • Training should include regulatory requirements and the financial institutionís internal BSA/AML policies, procedures, and processes.
  • At a minimum, the financial institutionís training program must provide training for all personnel whose duties require knowledge of the BSA.
#5 Customer Due Diligence? New Pillar?
  • Appropriate risk-based procedures for conducting ongoing customer due diligence, to include, but not be limited to: Understanding the nature and purpose of customer relationships for the purpose of developing a customer risk profile; and Conducting ongoing monitoring to maintain and update customer information and to identify and report suspicious transactions.
