This presentation identifies the most common (and costly) security-related risks an institution may experience. Program content isn't based on theory -- it's a "real-life" program targeting issues that may contribute to more than 75% of an institution's losses. There are hundreds of ways to make critical security mistakes and so little time to deal with the aftermath. If you are a bank Security Officer, one of your primary duties is to reduce or eliminate opportunities for losses from internal and external sources -- and crime isn't the only issue. "Security" defines the process that provides a safe, secure environment for employees to work and customers to do business. It has rapidly evolved from a minimal function into the "Security Department" -- a business unit. The Security Officer is often responsible for protecting all of the institution's components simultaneously.
Examiners insist on a risk-based approach to doing business. This seminar identifies the most common (and costly) security risks an institution may experience. Critical mistakes and remedies are categorized to simplify the process. Both mistakes and remedies are drawn from the presenterís 37 years experience as a security practitioner. The Security Officer isn't the only position responsible. The Board and others play a role in risk reduction and loss avoidance. By understanding the cause and effect between the creations of an effective security function and risk reduction techniques, you may implement an institution-wide Security Program that reduces losses and increases profit.
