CFPB’s Kraninger, OCC’s Brooks to Address Bankers at ABA Risk and Compliance Virtual Conference


CFPB Director Kathy Kraninger and OCC Acting Comptroller Brian Brooks are among the top regulatory policymakers participating in this year’s American Bankers Association Risk and Compliance Virtual Conference on July 28-30. The conference, which will merge the programming of the ABA Risk Management Conference and the ABA Regulatory Compliance Conference, will be held as a joint virtual event for the first time.

During the three-day conference, which will bring together the banking industry’s leading risk and compliance professionals, attendees will hear directly from Kraninger and Brooks as well as other senior regulatory officials and risk and compliance experts.

“While this year’s conference will be held virtually for the first time, one thing that hasn’t changed is the depth and breadth of the program and the participants,” said Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO. “Amid the banking industry’s heightened focus on navigating the COVID-19 pandemic as well as economic inclusion, this conference will provide critically important information for our industry’s top risk and compliance professionals.”

The conference is the only one of its kind because it’s designed by bankers for bankers. This year’s event will feature a combination of live general sessions, pre-recorded breakout panel discussions and virtual marketplace networking opportunities. The live general sessions are open to the press and include:

  • Fireside Chat with the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Kathy Kraninger;
  • Fireside Chat with the Acting Comptroller of the Currency Brian Brooks;
  • State of the Industry;
  • Keynote Address Featuring Kevin Greenfield comptroller for operational risk, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency;
  • Pandemic Response and Business Continuity: What Risk and Compliance Officers Need to Know;
  • Adaptive Strategies in Changing Times: The Intersection of Economic Forecasting with the Risk Management Framework;
  • Toward Fair and Equitable Banking: A Conversation;
  • Trends in Corporate Citizenship and Community Engagement
  • Profile of a Future Compliance Officer: Regulatory Expert or Technologist?;
  • How to Engage in the Fight Against Cyber Threats;
  • Innovation’s Impact on Risk and Compliance;
  • Supervisory Regulatory Roundtable – Risk;
  • Supervisory Regulatory Roundtable – Compliance; and
  • Closing General Session – Dark Times, Strong Risk and Compliance Programs: Navigating Unprecedented Times.

“This year’s combined conference will cover the most important risk and compliance issues facing banks today,” said Virginia O’Neill, ABA’s executive vice president for regulatory compliance and policy. “Attendees will find the virtual experience offers new and innovative ways to engage with peers and an opportunity to hear directly from the regulators setting the rules of the road for banks of all sizes.”

Most of the ABA Risk and Compliance Virtual Conference sessions qualify for CRCM and CPE continuing education credits.
