Consumer Compliance and Protection
What is Consumer Compliance and Protection?
Agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Reserve have made consumer protection a priority. Since its inception, the CFPB has dedicated itself to making sure financial institutions treat consumers fairly. The Federal Reserve expect all banks and their subsidiaries, especially those with assets of $10 billion or less, to exhibit strong compliance risk management practices.
Moreover, compliance programs must explicitly demonstrate a “risk-focused” approach. The Federal Reserve’s Community Bank Risk-Focused Consumer Compliance Supervision Program describes a risk-focused approach as “identifying, measuring, monitoring, and controlling risks and practices regarding the treatment of consumers, the potential for consumer harm, and compliance with consumer protection laws and regulations.”
Whether you call it a risk-focused, risk-based, or enterprise-wide approach, the ultimate goal is creating a cross-functional, dynamic compliance program. To thrive in the See-Through Economy, where consumer opinion vastly outpaces regulatory action, financial organizations must have a system in place to proactively adapt to examiner and consumer demands.
What are the Benefits of a Consumer Protection Compliance Tool?
The See-Through Economy is an age of transparency. Consumers have come to know social media and advanced technology as their partner in holding corporations accountable for protecting their funds, data, and best interests. In turn, lawmakers are responding to these demands by developing state and federal consumer compliance and protection regulations.
So how do you keep up with rapid change? You need a system that moves just as quickly. Manual processes backed by spreadsheets and Word documents won’t keep pace. Automated consumer compliance protection tools take away the pain points of version control and manual change management.
As a mission, compliance reaches far beyond one department. A consumer compliance tool like LogicManager helps organizations reach out to different departments and levels of the organization to gain valuable, actionable insights in real time.
A large faction of a successful consumer compliance management program is escalating, resolving, and preventing customer complaints. The most advanced consumer protection compliance tools will provide pre-built, customizable customer complaint forms paired with automated workflows and reports to ensure escalation and gain insight into mitigatable trends.
