This session is a comprehensive review of ACH Audit requirements and includes a bonus section on ACH Risk Assessment components and common recommendations. 

As the roles and responsibilities of audit professionals expand, it is important that risk, compliance and operations staff are well-trained on the nuances of audit functions, testing, validation procedures and internal controls. In this workshop, participants will learn how audits are driving efficiency and improving operational excellence across the institution. This highly informative workshop encourages participants to ask what should be reviewed and why in an annual ACH Audit, how risk assessments play a role in strategic program oversight within an institution, and what information should be reported to the Board.  This workshop will cover ACH in detail, being the only payment channel requiring an annual audit today. The presenter will discuss the importance of identifying Third-Party Senders and the Rules surrounding them, including on-boarding, monitoring, and audit requirements. As a bonus, the second half of this workshop will focus on risk assessment components and common recommendations regarding implementing controls for ACH, Wire, and Remote Deposit Capture program!

1. What should be reviewed and why in your annual ACH Audit;
2. How risk assessments play an important role at a financial institution; 
3. Third-Party Sender Rule requirements;
4. Risk Assessment components and recommended controls for ACH, Wire, and RDC.
