FFIEC Launches New Industry Outreach Website

The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) today announced the launch of a new Industry Outreach website designed to share information about financial institution supervision with financial institutions, regulators, the public and other stakeholders.

The website also provides access to upcoming FFIEC-sponsored webinars and includes archived webinars, such as the Military Lending Act and Mobile Financial Services – Appendix E of the Retail Payment Systems Booklet.  Additional webinars, such as Updates to FFIEC Information Technology Guidance, which includes a summary of updates to the Management and Information Security Booklets and the Cyber Assessment Tool, will be added to the archive in the near future.

The FFIEC’s industry outreach program enhances communication between the FFIEC and financial institutions, trade associations, third-party service providers, consultants, and other interested parties.  To learn more or sign-up to receive email updates from the FFIEC, visit https://industryoutreach.ffiec.gov.

The FFIEC was established in March 1979 to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms and to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions. It also conducts schools for examiners employed by the five federal member agencies represented on the FFIEC and makes those schools available to employees of state agencies that supervise financial institutions. The Council consists of the following six voting members: a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; the Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; the Comptroller of the Currency; the Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration; and the Chairman of the State Liaison Committee.
