Security.” This section reiterates the agency’s commitment to safeguarding the data collected under provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and a pledge to continue to review procedures to enhance security.

As the fiscal year closed, the report said, FinCEN had more than 300 memoranda of understanding with external client agencies. In order to safeguard BSA data, FinCEN said it conducts onsite inspections at each agency to assess the proper and efficient use and security of BSA information, legitimate and documented purposes for utilization and re-dissemination, and appropriate retention and destruction procedures.
