  There are hundreds of ways to make critical security mistakes within a financial institution -- and there's so little time to deal with the aftermath created by those mistakes. If you are your institution's Security Officer, one of your primary duties is to reduce or eliminate the opportunities for losses from both internal and external sources -- and crime isn't the only issue. "Security" has become the term that defines the evolutionary process that provides a safe and secure environment for our employees to work -- and for our customers to do business. "Security" has evolved rapidly from a minimal function into the "Security Department" -- a business unit -- and the Security Officer is often assigned the responsibility for managing, promoting and protecting all of the institution's components simultaneously. Used appropriately, the security function may play a unique and pivotal role in ensuring the institution's overall profitability and success.

Examiners insist on a risk-based approach to doing business. This presentation is designed to identify the most common -- and costly -- security-related risks and accompanying mistakes that an institution may experience. The critical mistakes -- and the proposed remedies -- are categorized into several topic concentrations to simplify the process. Both the mistakes and remedies are drawn from BOL Guru Barry Thompson's extensive experience as a security consultant, trainer and writer. This presentation isn't based upon theory -- it's a "real-life, real-time" program relating to issues that may contribute to more than 75% of an institution's losses.

The Security Officer isn't the only position responsible for these mistakes, however -- the Board of Directors and other institution components also play a role in risk reduction and loss avoidance. By understanding the cause and effect relationships involving the creation of an effective security function and establishing appropriate risk reduction techniques, the Security Officer may use these examples to design and implement a standardized, institution-wide Security Program that both reduces losses and increases profit.
