Education Seminar

2015 Compliance
Take your compliance program to the next level amidst the uncertainty and potential chaos of 2015

No risk facing U.S. banks today is more significant than regulatory compliance, and there is no reason to expect that the regulatory compliance risk will lessen anytime soon.

Several major Dodd-Frank regulations have yet to be written or fully implemented. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is expected to write rules on overdraft protection, prepaid cards, debt collection, and small business loan data collection requirements.


The session will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with breakfast and registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. and lunch at noon.

8:00: Registration

8:20: Welcome and Introductions

8:30: Earning a Place at the Table
Lyn Farrell, Managing Director, Treliant Risk Advisors
How do compliance officers get to have a place at the executive table? We will discuss strategies to make compliance professionals gain respect and work together better with executive management.              

9:20: Financial Institutions Shed Light on “Invisible” Victims of Human Trafficking and Smuggling
Hugh Newman, Sales Engineer, Verafin
Human trafficking and smuggling are immensely profitable crimes that generate mountains of illicit proceeds. Unlike the victims of most crimes, however, neither the underage victims of human trafficking nor the undocumented aliens who are exploited by human smuggling organizations will report these crimes to law enforcement. In a sense they are invisible to law enforcement.


  • Overview of human smuggling and human trafficking crimes
  • Use of “funnel accounts” to launder criminal proceeds
  • Challenges that financial institutions face in their detection efforts
  • Red flags and indicators for financial institutions
  • How collaborative networks and cross institutional detection can advance detection capabilities

  • What trends are examiners seeing in the field?
  • What updates do you need to be aware of as we enter 2015?

12:55What You Need to Know About Lawsuits and Local Governments
Leland Chan, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, California Bankers Association
This session will discuss what compliance professionals should know about sources of regulation other than from Congress and banking regulators. Published court decisions can have the same impact on a bank as a published regulation, and don’t forget about ordinances enacted by cities where banks do business.
