Compliance Culture Scoreboard: How Does Your Institution Rate?
When regulators discuss the root causes of the problems in a financial institution’s Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering programs, invariably the cause that comes out at the top of their list is a weak culture of compliance. These points come from an advisory by FinCEN, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. The regulatory agencies have found that poor BSA performance is as much about the culture of a financial institution as it is about the products, services, customers, and geographic location of the business. How does your compliance culture measure up? Give your financial institution an honest assessment of how well it measures up in each of the six areas. [12/1/15]
