To fill the role of security officer, our bank may at times arbitrarily appoint an employee from a branch location as the branch security officer. This employee could be a teller, a loan officer, a new accounts rep, or a loan officer who has not received any type of security officer training. I am concerned that the bank is putting employees into a position that they don’t really want to be in and are ill-equipped to handle. I was recently hired as the Senior Security Officer for the entire bank and would like to recommend that the bank discontinue this practice. Is this a normal practice at other banks and, if so, what type of training do you suggest we provide these “newly elected” security officers?
Why would a bank choose a third-party deposit imaging over its core imaging module?
Is it a good idea for bank employees to carry concealed or even open weapons to work? We have many employees with state licenses who would like to bring their guns while working.
If we have reason to suspect that one of our bank staff members may be involved in internal fraud, who should begin the internal investigation – human resources, internal audit, legal or security?
We have been asked by an individual (non-customer) to provide any security tape that might show a traffic accident on the street close to the bank. I do not want to release any security tape we may have without a subpoena. Am I correct?
