Snap up this expert training for new security officers. Everyone has to start somewhere – even security officers. They are foundational to the safety of each financial institution and training is essential to their success. This practical program will address the security officer’s role, best practices, regulatory compliance, physical security issues, and more.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand lighting, landscaping, locations, and locks – the four Ls of security
  • Determine the proper steps to take with cash recyclers and ITMs
  • Explain to management the need for an annual risk assessment
  • Use the proper steps to close and open branch offices
  • Identify the records the credit union security officer or risk manager should keep

Designed for individuals who have little or no previous training in credit union security, this program will focus on Section 748 of NCUA’s Rules and Regulations, and Letter to Credit Unions #02-CU-12 to demonstrate the framework of what a credit union security program should contain. Although the regulations are very specific, they allow leeway for risk-management decision-making. This program will include industry standard practices and demonstrate (with pictures) how to comply. You will learn how to prepare and implement your security program for today’s world.

If you have been the security officer for less than three years or have been newly assigned, this is the webinar for you. If you have been the security officer for many years, this will be a great refresher on your position’s requirements. If your credit union hasn’t established the position of security officer and you perform the duties of Section 748 concerning robberies, burglaries, and larcenies, you won’t want to miss this program!
