Webinar Description

The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) is a major lending institution supervisory agency, and its regulatory programs are just beginning to unfold. The scope of the CFPB's statutory powers suggests that lending institutions can expect increasing attention from this federal watchdog agency to data security training and practices at institutions subject to its jurisdiction.


The management of data security is a prime issue as technology has become an integral part of consumer and commercial lending. Data breaches jeopardize consumer confidentiality.  The CFPB is going to demand that the lending institutions it supervises become more proactive in addressing protection of their customers’ data before breaches occur.


A data breach, where hackers gain access to customer information, can cost your company a substantial amount of money just to comply with mandatory post-breach remediation programs as well as millions of dollars in bad publicity and lost customers.


The best way to protect your customers’ data and avoid the costly consequences of a breach is to do all that you can to make sure a data breach does not occur in the first place.  Join noted CFPB compliance expert Ron Brown as he demonstrates how your bank or other financial institution can prevent damaging data security breaches.
