OCC Hosts Compliance and Operational Risk Workshops in Baltimore

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) will host two workshops in Baltimore at the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel, September 12-13, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC.

The Compliance Risk workshop on September 12 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises on the critical elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The workshop also focuses on major compliance risks and critical regulations. Topics of discussion include the Bank Secrecy Act, Flood Disaster Protection Act, Fair Lending, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, Community Reinvestment Act, and other compliance areas of interest.

The Operational Risk workshop on September 13 focuses on the key components of operational risk—people, processes, and systems. The workshop also covers governance, third-party risk, vendor management, and cybersecurity.

The workshop fee is $99. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, and assorted supervisory publications. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.
