OCC Hosts Risk Assessment and Compliance Risk Workshops in San Diego

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in San Diego at the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay-Downtown, May 6-7, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.

The “Compliance Risk” and “Risk Assessment” workshops are designed exclusively for directors of institutions supervised by the OCC. The compliance risk workshop focuses on major compliance risks and consumer protection regulations, such as the Qualified Mortgage Rule and Bank Secrecy Act, along with key elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The risk assessment workshop discusses the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision, and best practices to identify, measure, monitor and control risk. Focus areas include enterprise risk management, operational risk, and cybersecurity. Both workshops are taught by seasoned OCC supervision staff.

The fee is $99 for each workshop. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, and assorted supervisory publications. Each workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.

The workshops are among 35 being offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors. For information, including a complete list of available workshops, or to register for a workshop, visit or call (240) 485-1700.
