Bank Risk Management

February 21, 2020 - The Florida Hotel, Orlando, Florida

This seminar will cover best practices for dealing with the critical issues facing community bankers. For most of us, measuring risk has been an exercise in looking backward using ratios based on past history. Given the second major banking crisis in the past 25 years that occurred in the late 2000’s, our regulators are looking for enhancement in the risk measurement business and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is that next step. The agenda features sessions on enterprise risk/governance risks, strategic risks, operational risks, cyber risks, market risk, credit risk, regulatory risk and more.

Who Should Attend: CEOs, CFOs, Chief Risk Officers, Compliance Officers, Senior Bank Officers

9:00 – 9:55 a.m. - Crisis and Response: How FDIC History Could Impact Your Institution and Q&A
Bart Smith, Managing Director, Performance Trust
In late 2017, the FDIC published Crisis and Response: An FDIC History, 2008-2013. This introspective “LookBack” by the FDIC delves into the origins, impact, and lessons of the Financial Crisis from the viewpoint of your regulators. This session will help translate these lessons into potential points of heightened scrutiny on upcoming exams and will equip you with the insights you need in order to anticipate and respond to what regulators may be signaling.

9:55 – 10:50 a.m. - Emerging Cybersecurity Threats: Why the Dark Web Should Be Your Guide and Q&A
Shawn O'Brien, President, QwickRate
Hackers have always been ahead of the curve. The key to protecting your organization’s information assets is to preempt the direction and technique that the hackers will use next. In this session we’ll identify current IT Threats, issues, and trends that Financial Institutions face today and how to stay steps ahead of bad actors. In addition, we’ll provide an inside look into the mind of a cyber criminal and walk through a factious attack, step by step, as you learn the anatomy of a targeted Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). The session will explore methods of reconnaissance, social engineering techniques, detection avoidance methods, and common command & control communications.

2:00 – 2:55 p.m. - How to Dynamically Measure, Monitor and Manage Your Bank’s Liquidity and Q&A
Paul Allen, Shareholder, Saltmarsh, Cleaveland & Gund
 Every banker knows that liquidity has a tendency to ebb and flow with changing market conditions. As a rule, liquidity rises and falls inversely with the general trend and direction of interest rates. The ability to reasonably project the behavior of balance sheet cash flows, and therefore liquidity, is critical to sound asset liability management processes. This session will discuss the latest trends in measuring your bank’s liquidity.

2:55 – 3:50 p.m. - Managing Legal and Regulatory Risk and Q&A
Heather Archer Eastep, Partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth
 This session focuses on providing tactics in managing your exposures to legal and regulatory risk and will cover obligations in reporting/escalating issues to senior management and the board. We’ll also review hot button legal risk issues that you should be monitoring.
