No. Products cannot be removed from the risk assessment. Simply indicate “Not Applicable” for products not offered by your financial institution.


What is the ACH operations risk assessment?

The ACH operations risk assessment does not apply to the FFIEC guidance for customer-facing online products. Instead, it applies to the NACHA requirements for using ACH in your internal banking operation.


Is the ACH operations risk assessment as required by NACHA included?

Yes. A complete ACH operations risk assessment is included with your subscription. There are several unique categories specifically for the ACH risk assessment, including IAT.


We purchased the original ACH risk assessment tool from Beavercreek Marketing. Do we receive a free upgrade?

100% of the original purchase price will be credited toward the purchase of the new ACH risk assessment tool. All clients that are currently subscribed to the ACH risk assessment will only pay the new annual recurring fee.


Is the ACH risk assessment tool available as a stand-alone product?

No. The new Electronic Banking Risk Assessment replaces the ACH Risk Assessment. Both are included in the new software.


Is a GLBA risk assessment, or a global risk assessment included?

Not at this time.


Are third party venders addressed in this risk assessment?

Yes, issues surrounding third party venders of online banking services are included in the Vendors Issues Section of the survey.


When the user completes the survey questions, is a risk rating automatically assigned?

No. The user will review their answers to the survey and assign a risk rating based on the Likelihood of Risk, and also the Consequence of Risk. The survey questions and responses provide a useful guide for determining your own risk ratings.


Can inherent and residual risk assessments be performed?

Yes. An inherent risk assessment is essentially the initial risk before any controls have been added by the financial institution. The residual risk assessment is the risk after new controls are in place. Both inherent and residual risk assessments can be performed.


What types of printed reports are available?

Three reports are available for each online banking product. The "Executive Summary" displays your inherent (if available) and residual risk ratings, plus the controls and management findings for each risk category. The "Full Report" prints all information including each survey question and response, along with risk ratings, controls, and management findings. The "All Products Summary" provides a high level overview of the inherent and residual risk ratings for all of the products. 


Are the reports stored in the system?

Reports are not stored in the system. We recommend saving your reports as pdf files on your own computer or hard disk.


Is a history of risk ratings available?

Yes, the history of risk ratings is stored in the system.


Are risk ratings stamped with the date and name of the person that performed the risk rating?

Yes. Date and names can be added to each risk rating. This information is stored in the system.


How often should a risk assessment be prepared?

At least once a year, or more often as needed for new regulations, new products, new features, and substantial new known threats.


Can we complete a risk assessment for any one product?

Yes. Just select that product from the menu.
