Compliance Question of the Week

Question: Which compliance regulations require training?


While training is highly suggested for all compliance regulations, several regulations specifically have the training requirement codified.

While the frequency of training may vary, examples of when most banks commonly train include: annual training for all applicable employees; when monitoring dictates lack of knowledge or violations; as required for changes to policies and procedures; when the security program is revised or updated, when regulations are updated, and when new products or services are released by the bank. Regulations that require training include:

Regulation CC;
Bank Secrecy Act;
Bank Protection Act – the act that handles robbery and physical security of bank and employees;
Privacy - Interagency Guidelines Establishing Information Security Standards
Fair Credit Reporting Act for Identity theft red flags 

Reference: Regulation CC: 12 CFR 229.19(f) Bank Secrecy Act: 1020.210 Bank Protection Act (Minimum Security Devices and Procedures): FDIC 12 CFR 326.3; FED 12 CFR 208.61; OCC 12 CFR 21 Privacy - Interagency Guidelines Establishing Information Security Standards Fair Credit Reporting Act – Interagency Guidelines Concerning the Accuracy and Integrity of Information Furnished to Consumer Reporting Agencies; ID theft red flag rules SAFE Act 12 CFR 1008
