This Bank Secrecy Act training will explain how to train your frontline staff to ask BSA questions. It will cover Currency Transaction Report (CTR), Monetary Instrument Log (MIL) and Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) scenarios and questions and much more.
Because the frontline of any financial institution is the first line of defense, it stands to reason that ill-trained frontline staff will, in essence, be the collapse of your institution. A strong and well educated frontline staff will help develop a strong back office BSA department for your financial institution. Often times, the frontline doesn’t know why they are asking the questions or what the point of BSA truly is.
This webinar will not only give them viable scenarios and how to respond but will also explain why they are asking the questions in the first place. Another valuable section of this webinar will be teaching the frontline when questions need to be asked. Most are familiar with when they should question CTR and MIL related transactions, but being able to look at a customer’s account history can also teach them how to ask for possible SAR situations.Areas Covered in the Webinar:

We all know that the frontline is first line of defense when it comes to a strong BSA/AML program but for being the frontline they need to be just as well trained as the back office compliance department. Sadly, this is generally not the case. The frontline has one of the hardest jobs; they are to be customer service focused but also need to be a mouthpiece for a strong compliance department that is often times at odds. Even in the time of the Patriot ACT people still believe they have a right to their privacy and nothing is more personal than their hard earned money. While you, the financial institution, are not trying to violate their right to privacy, your customer needs to understand you are here to help them and not irritate them. The best way to equip frontline staff with the proper tools it to teach them how a BSA officer would talk to a customer.
