15 Worst Security Mistakes
Barry Thompson

There are hundreds of ways to make critical security mistakes within a financial institution—and there’s little time to deal with the aftermath created by those mistakes. This session identifies the 15 worst security mistakes that consultants find financial institutions making and how to correct them. The mistakes and remedies presented are drawn from Thompson Consulting Group’s extensive experience consulting and training financial institutions across the country. 

11:00 a.m.
Domestic Violence and the Work Environment 
Branch Walton, Retired Secret Service

Domestic abuse is not a crime that can continue to be ignored by the victim’s employer. Employers must recognize that personal, "real life" problems affect job performance and job performance affects the bottom line. Nearly 1/3 of women in this country claim to have been the victims of physical or sexual abuse. Three women are murdered by their significant others each day. The workplace is often the site of these attacks. Domestic violence is a workplace issue. This course covers public perceptions, liability issues, predictors, and specific helpful guidelines and suggestions for the employer and victims.

Board Reporting: The Security Perspective
Barry Thompson

Regulations specify that the Security Officer must report to the board annually and that the implementation, administration, and effectiveness of the security program be addressed. What exactly the Security Officer should report to the board is not clearly identified in the regulations.  This interactive session will review best practices relating to training, inspections, and foreseeable events that should be reported to your board.  

2:00 p.m.
Pandemic Fraud   
Barry Thompson & Arvin Clar

The spread of COVID‐19 has launched a million frauds by criminals. Fear about the economy, obtaining basic supplies, or just paying necessary bills has made people vulnerable. Confidence scammers are taking full advantage of this situation by using our fears to make money. This cutting edge program will show you what to expect from the frontline to the C‐suite. Failure to train now will cost your financial institution major dollars when people miss the tell tail signs of fraud. Don’t discover your problems on the evening news!
