A message from Jim Beveridge

Faced with the global pandemic that resulted in shutdowns, travel restrictions, and social distancing mandates, the past year was a challenging one for us all! We were forced to pivot from our traditional annual in-person and remote Bank Security Conference to a remote only program in 2020. While the country has come a long way in fighting COVID-19 and many areas are opening up, the 27th Annual Bank Security Conference, scheduled for Tuesday, October 26, and Wednesday, October 27, 2021, will be remote only again this year to alleviate any concerns or challenges we know many of you are still facing.

All of us at Bankers' Hotline are excited to bring another comprehensive training program to you and your staff at the convenience (and safety) of your location. We have assembled an outstanding team of professional speakers who are recognized leaders in their respective fields and an agenda packed with timely topics to help you develop, implement, and deliver a premier security program for your organization. As always, we have reviewed prior attendee evaluations for insight into the challenges you face today and what areas of focus are needed most for security, investigative, operations, and compliance professionals in the financial services industry.

In today's ever-evolving financial landscape, it is more critical than ever to ensure that you and your staff meet annual training requirements, that you are prepared for those difficult annual Board report questions, and that your bank's overall security program addresses today's wide range of physical and virtual risks. We will help you achieve those goals with a variety of informative presentations including safe deposit horror stories, embezzlement, check fraud and emerging trends, kidnapping prevention and survival, interviewing techniques to uncover deception and reveal when a suspect is lying, how to use Open Source Intelligence when conducting financial fraud investigations, FinCEN's financial crime overview and latest trends, and more!

As we have done in the past, all of the two-day sessions will be available for 90 days so that you can review the content when (and where) it is most convenient. This archive option provides the opportunity to receive this critical training regardless of ever-changing, busy schedules. You get all this (including a certificate of attendance) for one low price! Security training is essential, and we are here to help.

And there's more. When you register, you can add an additional registered attendee at no additional cost! (Two for the price of one!)

We look forward to meeting you virtually in October!

Embezzlement, Check Fraud & Emerging Trends

Earlier this year the Federal Trade Commission issued their latest fraud data, and it may surprise you that in the age of digital payments and electronic transactions fake check scams and check fraud remain in the "Top 10 Fraud Categories" and cases continue to rise. Check fraud can take many forms. Would you recognize an instance when it's presented at your institution? How can you educate your accountholders to help them avoid falling victim to these schemes? What is the process for reporting these scams?

Instances of fraud can be even more difficult to detect when they are occurring right under our noses. More and more regulatory enforcement actions and civil money penalties involve embezzlement by anyone from the frontline, to the loan department to the executive office. In fact, according to an FBI report, 60% of employees would steal if they knew they wouldn't get caught. Reassuring, right? In this session, we will also review the red flags which may indicate an instance of embezzlement at your institution. We will review specific, real-life scenarios and how you can protect your institution.

Some of the topics covered:

    Review of Current Fraud and Scams
    A thorough review of red flags for common types of fraud and scams facing your institution and its accountholders.

    Identify Red Flags for Embezzlement
    An overview of real-life and sample scenarios that could threaten your institution.

    Risk Management Practices
    A thorough discussion of risk management practices and controls over your risk management program.

    Effective Internal Monitoring of Employee Accounts
    A list of internal reports you should review to identify potential employee fraud.

    Understand the Reporting Process
    A review of reporting requirements to meet the requirements and guidance of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), FTC and other federal and state agencies.

    Implement Procedures for Employee Reporting
    Samples and best practices to develop policies and procedures for employees to report suspected instances of internal fraud, including the importance of various departments working together to identify and resolve cases of potential embezzlement.

When confronted with adverse events such as natural disasters, technological failures, human error, or an act of terrorism, business continuity planning is essential to diminish the negative impact of disruptions on your financial institution's operations, reputation, and more! This session will provide an initial discussion of the components of an organizational Business Resiliency Program and then focus on how organizations can scale Business Continuity Planning to meet the culture and size of your organization. It will cover the phases of Business Continuity Planning and how each phase in the process provides the foundational data that will enable leaders and managers to analyze risks to business functions and processes, and weigh level of risk to the cost of mitigation.

The Business Resiliency components consist of:
– Program Governance
– Risk Assessment
– Business Continuity Planning
– Information Technology
– Disaster Recovery
– Crisis and Incident Management
– Emergency Preparedness

The Business Continuity portion of our discussion will address
– Risk and Threat Assessment (All hazards approach)
– Business Impact Analysis (BIA) (Establish Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs); Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs); Critical    Dependencies / Single Point of Failures)
– Recovery Strategies and Solutions (Recovery Priorities)
– Continuity Plan Documentation (How to Document your Plans)
– Continuity Plan Training, Validation, and Testing (Approaches to Training, and Validation)

Recent safe deposit vault burglaries, DEA & FBI search warrant raids, nationwide protester/rioter robberies, poor vault security, sloppy recordkeeping and many other nationwide horror stories have significantly impacted our safe deposit industry. Following these tragic events, financial institutions have unfortunately been confronted with many very difficult challenges, decisions, significant lawsuits and damaging newspaper and TV coverage.

Did you inherit the safe deposit area and then start wondering what liability might exist? Historically, this responsibility has been routinely passed from one security office to another with very little training or attention given to existing procedures or documentation. Unfortunately, only after a burglary, disaster or lawsuit occurs does management turn its attention to this area.

Whether you have 50 boxes or 5,000, this presentation provides a realistic and well-organized method of reviewing and auditing your procedures before a burglary or catastrophe occurs. Your speaker knows firsthand what to look for, from the most common errors to the not so common, but potentially costly mistakes. This presentation will help you review your own internal procedures.

The best thing you can do to prevent yourself from being a victim of kidnapping is to develop and use good "Situational Awareness". Other Talking Points will be: Recognizing "Pre-Incident Indicators to Violence"; understanding why we "rationalize our fears away"; developing a "Survival Mindset" and unleashing the "tool of violence" to either fend off your attackers, or escape their captivity. You will learn when is it time to "fight" and when is it time to "placate". You will be shown how to defeat restraints to include rope, duct tape, and handcuffs. You will understand the importance of the "4 C's of Travel Safety" - Cash, Contact List, Comms Plan, Credentials; and you will learn how to recognize & use improvised weapons. We will also discuss KFR (Kidnap for Ransom) insurance and how important it is to plan and rehearse what your employer and family will do in the event of your kidnapping.

Exploring beyond the boundaries and developing unexpected information in places you did not know exist using techniques to simplify and direct your results is just the beginning of what this training will do for you. Open source intelligence is more than just an ability to use the Internet. Special databases and offline sources are among the many rich veins of information that go unknown and untapped by the financial industry, intelligence analysts, business researchers, law enforcement, investigators, security personnel, EP teams, legal professionals, and financial researchers. You will learn various essential investigative skills:

– The Thought Process that will change the way you obtain information and open your mind!
– Basics on How to Protect your Identity while searching and maneuver covertly!
– Direct your Searches to obtain results quickly for Best Due Diligence!
– Find unexpected items such as Confidential and Financial Information!
– Use Social Networks and Media as an Investigative Tool!
– Learn to KYC (Know Your Customer) and KYCC (Know Your Customer's Customer)!

You finally boarded your flight, stowed away your luggage, and are getting comfortable for the journey to your destination. But before you take off, the flight crew goes over the safety protocols. If you look around, you will notice that 90% of the passengers are paying no attention. We've all heard it before, one thousand times and can recite them in our sleep. But are we really paying attention? The announcements proceed:

"In the event of a drop in cabin air pressure, an oxygen mask will automatically drop in front of you. Place it firmly over your mouth and nose, secure the elastic band behind your head and breathe normally. If you are traveling with a child or someone who requires assistance, secure your mask on first, then assist the other person."

"Secure your mask on first" — You can't help the person next to you if you've passed out on their lap because of a lack of oxygen!

You can't help anyone until you're the best "You" you can be. You cannot help your organizations, nor your families until you focus on yourself first. Choose to work on yourself, first. Choose to become the best version of yourself. It all starts with you.

This talk will focus on the importance of working on our best selves first. It will cover four areas of our lives where we can all improve on in order to become the best version of ourselves. We will also discuss living our lives in our circle of influence rather than focusing on things we cannot control.

This class will cover:
– What does it mean to become the "best version of ourselves"?
– How do we fool ourselves into thinking that we are good enough as we currently are?
– Why are we letting 4 little words have a negative impact in our lives: "I don't have time".
– We will discuss four areas in our lives where we can focus on in order to become our best selves.
– We should not settle for being a second-rate version of someone else, nor a second-rate version of ourselves.

This session and topic are important because you are important. And people are counting on You!

FBI-FinCEN: Financial Crimes Overview & Latest Trends

While we focused on protecting our families and businesses during from the COVID-19 pandemic, criminals were exploiting our dependence on technology to go on a virtual crime spree. In addition to traditional internet based crimes, fraudsters targeted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), including provisions aimed at helping small businesses. As the pandemic and our response evolved, so did the variety of crimes surrounding the pandemic targeting both businesses and individuals.

Some of the topics covered in this session will include:
– A review of crime statistics which will include a look at those targeting elderly Americans
– A more detailed dive into the top 5 fraud schemes reported to the FBI
– Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) data statistics and the FBI's use of that data
– The Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 and it's impact on law enforcement.

In recent years we have learned that civil unrest can erupt without warning. Large demonstrations and gatherings can quickly turn violent resulting in personal injury to people and property damage to businesses.

Preparing for civil unrest is very similar to preparing for any natural or other manmade adverse event. How well we prepare for an adverse critical event and how rapidly and effectively we respond when an emergency, incident or crisis occurs are critical. Our actions (or inactions) can make the difference between keeping our people, assets and reputation secure, or not.

– Understanding the rhythm of managing a critical incident
– Examples of - Prepare, Deter, Detect, Respond, Recover for civil unrest
– How to prioritize your risk
– Key parts of a Critical Incident Management Plan
– What part does intelligence play in civil unrest?
– How social media plays a role in civil unrest
– What is, and what value, is a common operating picture?
– What technologies provide value in a preparedness and response plan?
– The importance of managing the balancing act between business continuity, risk management and crisis management

– How do you trace cryptocurrency transactions on the Blockchain?
– What investigative tools are available?
– How can you differentiate between wallets, exchanges, and miner reward proceeds on a blockchain?

D. Glenn Foster

Glenn Foster, the originator and developer of The Kinesic Interview Technique will provide a brief discussion of the deceptive voice patterns that can let you know if a person is deceptive in a dialogue. The normal person's verbal pattern changes if they are withholding information and this quick discussion will provide a fast way of determining whether someone is lying.

D. Glenn Foster and Chris Holland
Kevin Mullins

The business landscape has changed over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and banks needed to alter their practices on the fly to keep operations intact. Now that branches are reopening, what has this global emergency event taught us about being ready for evolving operational and security challenges? How can banks leverage technology and systems they already have to realize even greater returns? How can technology continue to drive modernization in both staffing and procedural efficiency? What's the best way to address points of vulnerability that were made apparent during and after the pandemic? And as the world returns to normal, what does the future hold for the branch environment?

You'll learn:
– What are the main factors driving branch evolution/transformation?
– The safety of staff and customers is always paramount and, with growing concerns about potential emergency situations, where do branches start to address this?
– With increased scrutiny on efficiency and lower staff counts, is it finally time to seriously consider and implement a sole control environment? Can it be done safely?
– What new processes, policies and procedures are most affecting the branch environment? How can banks best cope with these changes and stay ahead of the curve?
– Safety isn't just the responsibility of the security department...what is the multi-departmental impact of the growing focus on safety and the challenges of securing branches?
