Why Should You Attend:

As the number and complexity of relationships with third parties increases, the need for a consolidated approach toward the management and risk reduction of third parties becomes more important. The third party relationship may take many forms and address many of the FIs needs. Typically, cost controls are the reason for employing the third party. FIs may:

  • Outsource entire bank functions to third parties, such as tax, legal, audit, or information technology operations.
  • Outsource lines of business or products.
  • Rely on a single third party to perform multiple activities, often to such an extent that the third party becomes an integral component of the bank’s operations.
  • Work with third parties that engage directly with customers.
  • Contract with third parties that subcontract activities to other providers.
  • Work with a third party to address deficiencies in bank operations or compliance with laws or regulations.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • What’s a third party?
  • Third party risk management life cycle
  • Plans that outline the FI’s strategy
    • Identify the inherent risks of the activity
    • Detail how the bank selects, assesses
    • Oversees the third party.
  • Proper due diligence in selecting a third party.

Topic Background:

Financial institutions (FI) often outsource banking functions to qualified third party service providers and software vendors. A third party relationship is any business arrangement between a bank and another entity, by contract or otherwise. This webinar provides assistance to FIs for assessing and managing risks associated with third party relationships. Regulators expect an FI to practice effective risk management regardless of whether the bank performs the activity internally or through a third party. An FI’s use of third parties does not diminish the responsibility of its Board of Directors and senior management to ensure that the banking function is performed in a safe and sound manner and in compliance with the FI’s policies and applicable laws.

Managing the third-parties is an integral aspect of the FI’s risk management function. The engagement, operation, oversight and termination of third party relationships require each FI to create and maintain a set of policies and procedures to address this risk. The framework for the policies and procedures is often provided by one of a number of federal agencies tasked with oversight of the financial industry. These agencies include, but are not limited to:

  • Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC)
  • Federal Reserve System (FRB)
  • Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
  • National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)
  • Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)
  • Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

Please note that the framework and principles that are presented in this webinar are appropriate for any organization that uses third-parties to conduct their business. Your business, despite not being an FI, will benefit from the webinar and can drive the policies and procedures that you will use to establish and maintain an effective relationship with your third-party partners.
