Cybersecurity Overview and Ransomware Tabletop Exercise

This session will cover current trends in cybersecurity, including emerging threats and cyber crime/fraud statistics. The session will also cover industry preparedness and best practices for financial institutions, as well as highlighting the importance of business continuity efforts in relation to cybersecurity events. The final portion of the session will include a tabletop exercise focusing on a mock ransomware incident at a bank and the different roles and responsibilities of directors, officers, and IT personnel.


IT Lessons Learned from the Pandemic – COVID Morphed Over Time, Did You?

This session will be interactive and include both presentation elements and discussion topics from participants on the IT lessons learned from the pandemic. Key topics will include such items as the importance of business continuity preparation and tests, balancing security and operations in a rapidly changing/devolving environment, implementing perimeter security with an ever-expanding perimeter, best practices for accessing, transmitting, and storing data remotely, and the recently issued FFIEC guidance on authentication.


Corporate Governance

Safety starts in the board room. This session explores the three pillars of corporate governance and the directors’ role in building a strong internal control structure. Most bank failures are due to ineffective controls that could have been avoided with strong corporate governance techniques. You will learn some red flags that tell you whether your institution is at risk and we will introduce you to some strong management tools that can enhance your supervision of the bank.


Adapting to…Uncertain Times – Risks and Rewards

Many banks in the San Francisco Region find themselves with ample capital and liquidity and are looking for ways to deploy it. We will explore the appropriate corporate governance surrounding entering into new business lines, including regulatory expectations. We will also discuss industry trends.


New Director Survival Kit

This session offers useful information about what to expect from the FDIC in the first few years of operation. Learn about different board committee structures and how they should operate. Gain practical tips for conducting effective meetings, keeping adequate minutes, and more. We will also discuss the CAMELS rating system and other examination types – Compliance, IT, Trust, BSA.
