Community Banc Consulting of Ohio, Inc.

Examiners are evaluating policy especially information technology centric policy more strictly than ever as they focus their scrutiny on risk management. Often times, writing accurate Information Security Policy, conducting thorough Risk Assessments or creating useful Disaster Recovery Plans is a resource consuming monster, but it does not have to be. Community Banc Consulting of Ohio Inc. will use our years of experience in technology and auditing to write or revise policy for you that is compliant and serves as an instrument of guidance for the operation of your bank. CBC Policy is thorough and customized for your bank. We can even meet with the examiners for you.

CBC will develop compliant policies for you that work with your current operations, parallels or improves your actual bank procedures, and limits your exposure to examiner scrutiny. Our process requires very little time investment from your employees. The language and branding will be polished and custom to your bank.

Why is CBC qualified to write my policy?

CBC has been a technology and compliance consultant to community banks for over fifteen years. Our dedicated compliance and technology officers shoulder the burden of staying up to date through seminars and their own exhaustive research and study. We take our responsibility very seriously. We are the technology department or third party auditors for banks across Ohio. We write custom policies for our clients that not only stand up to the scrutiny of examiners but guide the operation of the bank.

What is the CBC process for writing policy?

First, CBC will examine your existing policy to determine factors such as compliance, gaps, use, enforcement, and training. We will interview management to determine if the policies in place are in practical use, are relevant, or accurate. The next step will be updating the policies based on our discovery and compliance standards. We then guide you through board approval and training.

Are the policies easy to keep updated?

Yes. Your custom policy will be a living document that is intended to be updated. Once you have high quality, organized policy in place, it is easy to update when new regulations or operational changes occur. One problem we have seen from many banks is that they fall behind on their updates due to resource issues. We eliminate that headache by offering update services.

Save yourself the headache of creating worthwhile policy and let our experienced compliance officers focus on your policy so that you can focus on your bank.
