A new security compliance manual has been published by the American Bankers Association.
"Security Compliance Update: Federal Regulations for Loss Prevention" contains information on all federal laws, regulations, and guidelines on bank security issues. Laws covered include the Bank Protection Act, the Bank Secrecy Act, and the Expedited Funds Availability Act.
The manual is divided into sections by agency. Requirements that cross over agencies, such as contingency planning and reporting counterfeit securities, are covered in one chapter.
Color-coded graphics remind bankers which rules require written responses.
The manual costs $140 for members and $175 for nonmembers. Semiannual updates cost $125 a year for ABA members and $160 for nonmembers.
