Top 5 RDC Risk Assessment Findings & Resolutions

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.

When did your FI last perform an RDC risk assessment?

Leveraging expertise in RDC compliance and risk management procedures, this session will reveal the Top 5 RDC Risk Assessment Findings & Resolutions.

The Hidden Risks of Faster Payments

This session provides an understanding of credit push payments, debit pull payments, the sequence of the payment processes, and the risk related implications of directories, a key requirement of ubiquitous credit push payments.

Capabilities Benchmarking

This session provides a benchmark of where the RDC industry stands as related to mobile deposit, and small business RDC. In addition to the traditional presentation-type session, it will be an interactive session for FIs to collaborate and gain insight into various topics:
•    What approach do FIs take to setting mRDC limits?
•    Do any FIs still offer same day availability?
•    What are the most widely used risk management tools/tactics?

In addition to functional capability benchmarking, we will touch upon risk management capability benchmarking which continues to be extremely significant for all FIs trying to comply with FFIEC guidance.
