Regulatory Spotlight: Fifth Pillar of BSA

In 2016, FinCEN introduced the “fifth pillar” of BSA compliance: Customer Due Diligence, also known as the Beneficial Ownership Rule. All financial institutions are required to be in compliance with this rule by May 2018. To assist you with compliance, we’ve added information on Customer Due Diligence to several courses:

30323 – CIP Procedures and Protections
30501 – BSA and AML: Comprehensive
30502 – BSA and AML: Essentials
20107 – CIP: Customer Information and Verification

In addition, we have published a white paper about The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that you can easily print out and provide to your employees.
