This virtual seminar will assist community banks in navigating the critical considerations needed to effectively implement a sound vendor management program. Content will highlight key efforts needed to ensure prudent risk management, while also achieving bottom-line results.

Community banks may outsource a service, but they cannot outsource the responsibility. In a financial environment wrought with strong enforcement actions, rising regulatory expectations, and massive data breaches, community banks must understand and manage a secure network of relationships to ensure customer data, bank transactions, business activity, and shareholders are protected. 

Relationships with third-party vendors are commonplace and many provide a strategic advantage; however, the rewards aren’t without risk to financial institutions. Intense regulatory scrutiny and variations in third-party service application are challenging the risk management practices utilized by today’s community banks. 

Participants will examine the vendor management lifecycle and discuss: 

  • Effective strategies for vendor selection 
  • Evaluating risk associated with service providers 
  • Guidelines for structuring your vendor agreements 
  • Methods for monitoring and measuring success of your third-party vendors.

ATTENDEES: IT, Compliance, Universal Bankers, Branch Managers, C-Suite
