Many of the losses community and regional banks have sustained recently were attributable, not to loans they made, but to lapses in the management of legal, compliance and operational risk. As a result, governmental agencies and lawyers have heightened their focus on cybersecurity, data privacy and regulatory compliance.

Speakers discussed how community and regional banks can address this increased scrutiny and mitigate risk. This seminar blended legislative, regulatory and law enforcement perspectives with those of in-house and outside counsel to provide comprehensive analysis and recommendations for managing the emerging cybersecurity and compliance landscape.
