    Collapse Hot Topics for Banking Executives
    Defending Your Business from Cyber Attacks, 401(k) Best Practices and State Tax Issues When Lending in Multiple States

    The banking industry has seen a host of legislative and regulatory changes this year. To follow-up on our recent banking and financial services newsletter Issues of Interest, our banking practice invites you to join us in a live webinar for an in-depth recap of three key updates affecting banks and other financial institutions across the country.

    Our webinar will be divided into three sections:

    • Part I: The FFIEC cybersecurity assessment tool: Massive data breaches make headlines every week and, according to the FBI, a cybersecurity attack on one’s company is inevitable. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has recently developed a cybersecurity assessment tool in response to the increasing volume and sophistication of cyber threats targeted at financial institutions. Learn how you can use the new tool to evaluate your institution’s preparedness to manage its cybersecurity risks.
    • Part II (begins at 24:06): How to avoid common 401(k) plan errors for your bank: From both an employee and employer perspective, 401(k) retirement plans are a valued benefit for your institution. However, with regulations coming from both the DOL and IRS, organizations often make inadvertent compliance errors. We’ll discuss some of the more common errors for banking institutions and how you can avoid potential pitfalls.
    • Part III (begins at 42:31): Common Nexus Issues and the Tax Impact of Multi-State Business for Your Bank: Gone are the days when banks and financial institutions only did business in their small, local area. Today, banking is done over a much broader geographic territory. The tax impact for banks doing business in multiple states can be substantial and individual states’ laws should not be neglected. We’ll outline some of the more common issues and "things to consider" from a state tax perspective when conducting business in multiple states.

    CFOs, CIOs, COOs HR executives and managers and risk managers at banks and financial services institutions are encouraged to attend.
