BSA Officer Series: Managing Your BSA Alerts
In BSA, we move from Alert to Investigation to SAR. Do you know what to do when you get an Alert?

 This program is designed for both automated surveillance systems and your manual transaction monitoring BSA/AML/Fraud processes.

It will help you detect and determine what to do and when to do it on the Red Flag to SAR process. If this process is mismanaged, you’ll be criticized for not setting up a good model, not using your reports, not responding to subpoenas, frontline and other types of alerts.

Covered Topics

  • What is an “alert”?
  • What to do when you get one from the system, reports and back office
  • What to do when you get a subpoena, 314a match, OFAC match
  • How to work with the frontline
  • Risk rating alerts, excel spreadsheets and processes to keep those pesky examiners from criticizing your process
  • Use of negative news
  • From red flag to SAR, the cycle of alert, investigation and determination to file
