IRA Reporting – Annual Update
While we may have hoped the IRA reporting deadlines would be back to normal, the federal disasters and other interruptions on ‘normal’ life have triggered some late reporting in several states. We are not sure whether or not the processors picked up the late contribution deadlines or IRS filing extensions. If not, there may have to be some adjustments in how these are being reported in “which box?”
Audience: IT Dept, Financial Advisors, Customer Services Reps, Call Centers and Operations Dept

Ransomware, Phishing, Business Email Compromise, Oh my! Is Your Incident Response Plan Ready?
Financial institutions are particularly vulnerable by the very nature of the business. You have information that thieves want, the information they can parley into cold hard cash, if not the cash itself. Your incident response plan should provide confidence that you have the right personnel and procedures in place to deal effectively and timely to a security breach. And if that isn’t enough, the financial services industry is mandated to implement security controls and a framework for identifying potential risks, monitoring for and detecting unauthorized access mitigating the outcome, effectively responding to the event, and notifying customers, law enforcement and regulators when it does happen. Be sure that examiners will be looking at your Plan.
Audience: Senior management, Audit, Compliance, Risk Management, IT Committee, IT Officers, Information/Cyber Security Officers, Operations Officers, anyone interested in developing the IRP
