This training program is a one-hour excerpt from the webinar "Keeping Bank Secrets."  The other half of the Keeping Bank Secrets webinar is geared toward the person responsible for ensuring secrecy compliance, rather than all institution employees.

In May, 2007, a former bank loan officer in Alabama was sentenced to 15 months in prison for revealing to a customer that the bank had received a federal grand jury subpoena for the customer's records. Although prosecutors stated "Bank officials are aware that leaking knowledge of a grand jury subpoena is against the law," the fact is that many bank employees have never received training on the Right to Financial Privacy Act and truly are not familiar with the complex provisions that, in some instances, prohibit disclosure of certain types of records requests.

Suspicious Activity Reports, National Security Letters, certain search warrants, names on the 314(a) list, any subpoena or summons a judge or magistrate makes a special nondisclosure order on - there's a whole laundry list of required filings and/or records requests on which secrecy is mandated. A slip of the tongue to the wrong person about the wrong thing could result in civil money penalties, both against the institution and the individual responsible, as well as possible jail time.

You cannot afford to have weaknesses in training in this area. All your personnel need to have a clear understanding of where the legal lines for confidentiality are drawn by the federal government and what the consequences are of crossing one of them.

This webinar spells it all out for you.
This program is designed to be heard by every bank employee, officer and director. It will explain, in clear language, where the danger areas are and what can't be disclosed, using real-life scenarios to illustrate how slip-ups might occur. It will cover potential penalties, too.
