The Three Lines of Defense and Why You Need Them in Your Compliance Management System

October 18, 2022



All registrations to Compliance Resource webinars include five live connections AND the recording of the webinar (guaranteed for one year).

The Three Lines of Defense and Why You Need Them in Your Compliance Management System has been submitted to ABA Professional Certifications for CE credit review and is pending approval. Once we receive notification of the credit approval, we will notify attendees.


In this one-hour Lunch and Learn session, we’ll discuss how a braided, three-lines of defense structure around your compliance risk management can enhance your program and effectively mitigate risk.

This session will provide practical approaches to ensuring compliance is embedded in everyday processes and will cover:

  • Defining the three lines of defense: business unit management, compliance, and audit
  • Creating processes, tests, and monitoring initiatives to optimize each line and ensure they work seamlessly together
  • Identifying common challenge areas and actionable tips to navigate through them successfully
  • Addressing accountability – who should be doing what, when, and how.
  • Taking corrective action and how proactive communication can positively impact your processes
  • Using all lines to enhance risk assessment


Regulators often cite lack of governance, compliance culture, weak testing & monitoring, in poor CMS program examination reports. Join us October 18th to strengthen your CMS program and find out how properly addressing business unit management, compliance, and audits can build a strong, effective, compliant defense in your financial institution.
