MADISON, Wis. (3/11/08)--Credit union professionals can ensure they have taken the proper steps to secure their members’ personal information when outsourcing to third party vendors--and that they are satisfying regulatory requirements--during a Credit Union National Association (CUNA) webinar June 17. “Vendor Due Diligence--Securing Your Members’ Information” aims to help train any credit union staff directly working with outside vendors. Attendees will examine National Credit Union Administration guidance on vendor due diligence and learn how to perform a vendor risk assessment. The class also will identify the components of a vendor due diligence program and explore insurance issues, internal controls, and the roles of different credit union professionals in a contract review. Other CUNA webinars highlighted during the second quarter include:
* Bank Secrecy Act Training for Directors,” May 8, where volunteers will learn the major elements of BSA and those the board must engage. They will also discover what examiners expect from credit unions in risk assessment, customer identification, transaction monitoring, and reporting; and * “The ABC’s of Individual Taxpayer ID Numbers,” May 15, which walks attendees through the individual tax identification number (ITIN) application procedures to ensure submissions are processed quickly. They will learn the roles of acceptance agents, and then discuss the policies, procedures, and potential problems of developing an ITIN program.
