Detailed Approach to FFIEC Compliance

We begin our assessment by working closely with you to understand the current state of your organization in relation to the audit topic. We review previous audit results, examiner comments/ratings and interview management. We then review policies and procedures in relation to the examination guidance from the FFIEC. From there we will dig deeper into the actual business practices and controls related to the audit topic at hand. After this analysis we provide a detailed report outlining considerations such as current gaps and detailed recommendations to close those gaps.

What makes the Schneider Downs process so effective is that our FFIEC compliance assessments are aligned with the FFIEC examiner audit protocol. Through our deep understanding of FFIEC audit protocol we can perform a detailed review of your information technology operations. Our ultimate goal is to assess your organization's compliance with the FFIEC guidelines, identify gaps and provide you with detailed recommendations to effectively close those gaps and ultimately protect customer information.
