In a comment letter on the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act review, ICBA expressed deep disappointment with the outcome of the first EGRPRA review process 10 years ago, which had little impact on regulatory burden. To ensure the current two-year review is effective, ICBA called on regulators to: •hold at least six outreach meetings around the country to gather community bank input, •set up an EGRPRA.gov website and list the 10 most burdensome regulations, and •establish a director of the EGRPRA review process who can overcome the objections of individual agencies and resolve interagency disputes.
Provides community banks access to program that educates consumers on potential cyber threats
Washington, D.C. (August 27, 2014)—The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) today announced a new agreement with InfoSight Inc., a provider of managed security, IT compliance and vulnerability management services for regulated industries. The agreement offers ICBA members discounted access to InfoSight’s Customer Security Awareness Program (CSAP), which helps financial institutions educate their customers about corporate account takeover, ACH/wire fraud and other cyber threats that lead to financial losses and client victimization. The program also helps fulfill compliance obligations under the 2012 multi-factor authentication (MFA) guidance which requires financial institutions to manage a robust customer awareness and education effort. “We’re excited to offer community bankers this member benefit to help them enhance or build a customer security awareness program,” said Greg Martinson, executive vice president of Sauk Centre operations and education. “Everything a bank needs for a robust program is in one place and the materials are completely customizable so members can add their own logos and branding. This is a fantastic member-only benefit that ICBA provides for its community bank members.” InfoSight’s CSAP provides community banks with content such as articles, videos, newsletters, webinars and workshops available in multiple media formats, which are geared toward consumers and community bank customers. Community banks are able to use the content in a variety of ways including adding it to their website, newsletters or in their branches. By offering both a self-serve and full-service offering, the banks’ internal resources are free to concentrate on other priorities. “We’re pleased to work with the ICBA and provide their members with a comprehensive and easy-to-use security awareness program,” said Tom Garcia, CEO of InfoSight. “Our Awareness Program is the first to market and the most complete program available today.”
