  • Wolters Kluwer to Share Expertise at 2019 ABA Regulatory Compliance Conference

    May 23, 2019

    Barbara Boccia to Speak on Leading Indicators for UDAAP Risk, Moderate Panel

    Barbara Boccia, CRCM, Senior Director for Advisory Services and Regulatory Relations in Wolters Kluwer’s Compliance Solutions business, will speak on “Leading Indicators for UDAAP Risk: Being Customer-Centric without Compliance Compromise” at the 2019 American Bankers Association Regulatory Compliance Conference, June 9-12 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown New Orleans.

    UDAAP (Unfair, Deceptive or Abusive Acts or Practices) is a topic of increasing importance to financial institutions as well as to regulators. Boccia will present at 3:15-4:30 p.m. Sunday, June 9 and again at 10:15-11:30 a.m. Monday, June 10. She will be joined by Wells Fargo’s Emily Porath, CRCM, Vice President, Operational Risk, UDAAP Program Office to offer a bank’s front-line perspectives.

    “Compliance with UDAAP principles is a complicated matter for most financial institutions, large or small,” says Boccia. “The regulations are broadly defined and fairly subjective in interpretation, especially when applied by regulators with the benefit of hindsight. However, the increasing complexity of financial products and services, along with a myriad of communication and delivery methods, has made the UDAAP compliance task altogether more daunting.”

    The conference session will provide insights in helping banks identify UDAAP risks, and offer practical guidance for mitigating those risks through a comprehensive UDAAP risk assessment that is part of a bank’s Compliance Management System(CMS).

    Boccia will also moderate a conference panel discussion, “When Change is Driving the Future, Keep Compliance at the Wheel, featuring several regulatory compliance colleagues in a breakfast session Tuesday, June 11 from 7:30-8:30 a.m. The session will provide guidance on how banks may adapt their compliance management strategies to address evolving factors impacting the regulatory landscape:

    • Agile and scalable approaches to regulatory change management
    • Practical applications of Artificial Intelligence, FinTech and RegTech
    • Adapting Compliance Management Systems for regulatory and technology changes

    Wolters Kluwer panelists include Timothy R. Burniston, CRCM, Principal Regulatory Strategist and Senior Advisor; SK Karanam, Market Manager, Compliance Program Management; and Kris Stewart, Senior Director, Regulatory Compliance Analysis, Compliance Center of Excellence.
