The compliance burden will only get heavier in the coming year. In fact, 2013 will be busier than 2012, due to the onslaught of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) mortgage rules.
Your credit union should develop a compliance management system to address this overwhelming workload—the “new normal”—in an efficient way. The CFPB offers the most helpful guidance on creating a compliance management system, which consists of:
• Board of directors and management oversight, which will affect strategic planning;
• A compliance program that includes universal staff training and consistent monitoring;
• An overarching framework for responding to all consumer complaints; and
• Audit coverage of all compliance-related issues.
Credit unions hoping to get a firsthand--but safe--look at how a hacker might attempt to breach their systems can get just that at an upcoming symposium hosted by CUNA and National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors.
CUNA continues to have grave concerns with the Federal Accounting Standards Board credit impairment proposal, concerns it expressed in a letter to National Credit Union Administration Chair Debbie Matz Tuesday.
