This information packed program will provide you with a recipe on how to conduct your annual security review. No longer can you just use a checklist to determine if your financial institution is safe. We will instruct you on how to think like a criminal to protect your assets, information, and people. Today, the criminal world attacks your institution via computer, customers, and social engineering ploys. Your annual review should find or correct problems with physical security, robbery procedures, and staff training.
