According to the FDIC, financial institutions operate in a dynamic environment influenced by industry consolidation, convergence of financial services, emerging technology, and market globalization. All these forces combine to create inherent risk. To address this risk, a financial institution must develop and maintain a sound compliance management system that is integrated into the overall risk management strategy of the institution. In this session, Shannon Phillips, Jr. will discuss the elements of an effective compliance management system and how to better be fit for your next exam.
