For financial institutions, your records and files, both paper and electronic, must be meticulously managed and maintained in an effort to ensure your data is kept up to date and in compliance with a variety of legal standards. The future of your organization depends on it. Does your company have systematic, comprehensive policies and procedures that ensure you're retaining and destroying records appropriately, or could you be headed for legal hot water?

Creating policies and processes for organizing, storing, archiving, and destroying any organization's critical business documents can be overwhelming — but for financial institutions, it's even more complex given the legal guidelines that must be followed at all times. Not only is it important to know what information is stored, how it's stored, and where, it's imperative that documents and files be destroyed appropriately and in a timely manner to comply with government regulations. In today's volatile political and legal climate, financial institutions must make every effort to meet national and state rules and regulations.

Now, more than ever, it is absolutely critical that financial institutions maintain accurate records, store and dispose of them properly, and have the ability to access them immediately when required to do so.

In just one fast-paced hour, this timely webinar will provide you with the information you need to ensure your records retention program is effective, efficient, and in complete compliance with regulatory and legislative practices. Our records retention expert will show you how to encourage your employees to implement the new policies and procedures you initiate, offer tools and tips for keeping your program on track, and cover methods best suited to your organization's needs for storage, retrieval, and destruction. You will discover step-by-step retention procedures, locate need-to-know information on streamlining storage and access processes, learn how to establish proper destruction and disposal methods, and quickly become familiar with the legal and regulatory requirements your financial organization will face.

Failure to retain critical documents and information according to legal standards can land your organization in serious trouble. On the other hand, every record that is kept opens up the potential for sensitive information to be compromised. Therefore, failure to dispose of secure information can be equally if not more harmful. This power-packed program will provide you with the guidelines, answers, and up-to-the-minute specifics for creating a clear and simple records retention system that will allow you to fully comply with the latest state and federal regulations.

Records Retention Guidelines for Financial Institutions will help you take a practical approach to managing and maintaining your files, documents, and data in a way that saves time and minimizes potential legal hassles down the road.
