2013 Annual Security Conference
Click here for a PDF registration brochure
The Security function is an integral part of banking operations. Fulfilling your role as security officer does not need to be a full time job, but it must be a professional one. Security officers need a working knowledge of the laws, regulations and industry standards that give them the duty, authority and responsibility to act. They must also be able to develop policies and procedures to address security concerns and protect employees, customers and others, along with facilities, assets and records.
All regulatory agencies require the institutions they supervise to develop and maintain a Security Program—this is not an option. To be truly effective, a Security Program must contain policies & procedures that regulate the routine activities of every function and department within your institution.
This dynamic, fast-paced conference is specifically designed to address the continuing education needs of today’s professional security officer along with topics to deal with the everyday issues you confront while protecting your customers and your organization.
As an additional benefit for attendees, an exhibit area will feature companies showcasing products and services of interest to the Security Officer. All breaks, continental breakfasts and the cocktail reception will take place in the Exhibit Area so you will have plenty of opportunity to visit with the vendors and become aware of a number of the tools that can be used to streamline your operations.

The Annual Security & Risk Management Conference is developed for security officers, security assistants, facilities managers, cashiers, training officers, compliance officers, human resource officers, auditors, administrative officers, and any bank personnel dealing with security or risk issues.

“Security” isn’t just about alarms, robbery procedures and filing Suspicious Activity Reports. Security has become the evolutionary process that provides a safe, secure environment for employees to work and for customer to do business. Used appropriately, it can become a powerful force in averting losses and recovering funds & property. Used inappropriately, it can ruin the organization and its customers. Understanding the security function and the Security Officer’s role is as important as understanding the governing regulations themselves.
This pre-conference workshop provides a logical and strategic model that will help senior managers and security personnel understand the true scope of security-related regulations & industry-standard practices. The Security Officer may use this model to design and implement a standardized Security Program that meets or exceeds regulatory requirements.

Managing the Surge in Robberies
While internet and electronic crimes dominate the conversations within bank risk departments, a recent surge in robberies in some regions of the Midwest have awakened a sleeping dog.

According to a recent research paper by CERT, cases investigated by the Secret Service reveal that more than 50 percent of insider schemes involve employees in trusted positions, such as managers. And these crimes tend to go on under the radar, over extended periods of time, proving especially difficult to detect. And the insider threat is to organizations of every size.
