Prioritize compliance risk and extend your resources
With countless compliance regulations on the books and more on the way, what can small community banks do to survive? How can large banks possibly cover all the details of compliance in so many business units? As Washington demands stronger protection for customer information and complete transparency for transactions, every institution is pushed to the limit. It is almost impossible to interpret and comply with so many regulations ranging from deceptively simple to immensely complex.
