The FFIEC guidance, Risk Management of Remote Deposit Capture, was issued for examiners, financial institutions, and technology service providers to identify risks, evaluate controls, and assess risk management practices related to remote deposit capture systems.

Per the guidance:
•    An FI offering RDC should have sound risk management and mitigation systems in place and periodically conduct a risk assessment to identify the related types and levels of risk exposure.
•    Appropriate technology and process controls should be implemented to address operational risk.  
•    Effective risk measurement and monitoring systems should be implemented.
