Bank Boards of Directors: Governance and Oversight Measures to Mitigate Risks Under Evolving Regulatory Frameworks
Navigating Bank Failures, Climate Change, Cybersecurity, Data Privacy and Access to Banking and Credit
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will offer guidance to bank counsel on critical areas of risk that impact U.S. banks--bank failures, climate change, cybersecurity, and social justice--and steps the bank boards they advise should take to address the evolving regulatory framework around these issues.
- Current banking risks for bank boards: legal and regulatory
- Climate change: risk management, disclosure
- Cybersecurity: current and emerging risks and issues in focus for regulators
- Consumer protection, equal access to banking services, anti-discrimination initiatives
The panel will review these and other critical questions:
- How should banks go about assessing the financial risks associated with climate change?
- How are banks mitigating the risks of cyberattacks in light of the increased use of online and mobile app banking?
- What kinds of cybersecurity protocols should a board put in place for third-party service providers?
- What steps should banks be taking to protect themselves, and what disclosure controls should be in place to respond to a cyber incident?
- What are the potential legal and regulatory consequences of discriminatory banking practices?
