“Michael Berman is a recognized expert on vendor management and compliance issues.”
Brentwood, Tennessee (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Ncontracts (http://www.ncontracts.com) has been engaged by financial institutions for over five years as resource to help banks manage third party risk. Vendor management is a hot topic for financial institutions, which face growing compliance scrutiny and costs. On February 6, 2015 the FFIEC issued new guidance (http://www.ffiec.gov/press/PDF/FFIEC_Appendix_J.pdf) updating the components of an effective third-party vendor management program. As Michael Berman, CEO of Ncontracts, explains “regulatory expectations will continue to evolve and banking professionals need to be proactive in preparing for the residual risks that could impact their institution”.
Ncontracts is an endorsed partner of the Western Independent Bankers (WIB) Association and later this year Mr. Berman will be speaking at their Annual Education Summit. “Michael Berman is a recognized expert on vendor management and compliance issues. He has lead several of our education sessions in the past and we look forward to having him back this year,” said Betty House, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of the WIB.
In addition to this event, Ncontracts will be providing live educational presentations in California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas. Ncontracts provides online seminars on the latest vendor management issues and regulations throughout the year.
