Complying with the 2019 SAR Cyber-Event Reporting Requirements

May 31, 2019
Program Overview: 

May 30, 2019, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm THIS IS A MORNING WEBINAR

As of February 1, 2019, financial institutions must use the BSA suspicious activity report (SAR) to report certain cybercrimes and illicit cyber activities.  This webinar will assist both IT personnel (what needs to be reported) and BSA personnel (how to report), as both have a role under the new requirements.  A group effort is needed to provide appropriate, correct information to FinCEN.  Attend this webinar to learn how to bring the efforts of both groups together to ensure accuracy and compliance.

  • What cyber issues need to be reported via a SAR?
  • How to complete the appropriate SAR sections to provide useful information
  • What needs to be done differently for this type of SAR?
  • The process of writing the “technical” narrative


    • The manual will provide a comprehensive set of instructions for completing all aspects of a SAR, with special emphasis on cyber issues
    • Employee training log
    • Quiz to measure staff learning and a separate answer key
