  • Accelerating Trends in Faster Payments - Reed Luhtanen, The U.S. Faster Payments Council
  • As the use cases for faster payments solidify with growing demand, accelerating trends, and new solutions to support adoption, the need for a faster payments strategy for every organization becomes more critical. What are the challenges? What are the real opportunities? How do you bring together diverse stakeholders and differing views to find common ground? That's what the U.S. Faster Payments Council is tackling through collaboration. With a shared vision as its foundation, the FPC fosters collaboration by encouraging contribution to generate the inclusive ideas and solutions that produce progress. In this session, learn about the current state of faster payments and expectations for the future to help inform your long-term faster payments strategy.

  • Improving Payments Security - Andrés Rapela, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
  • Fraud is a persistent concern with costly implications, affecting everyone throughout the payments industry. The Federal Reserve leads multiple initiatives in collaboration with the industry to help address the most pressing threats to the U.S. payment system. Join this important session to hear about the Fed's work to advance payments security, including efforts around consistent fraud classification and synthetic identity fraud. Learn about opportunities for your organization to join the Fed in the collective fight against fraud.

  • Compliance Enforcement for the ACH Rules - Chelsye Toliver, ePayResources
  • As a participant in the ACH Network, there are rules and regulations financial institutions must comply with to maintain the integrity of the Network. Do you know what happens when you do not comply? Appendix Nine of the ACH Rules spells it out, but many ACH participants do not give adequate attention to this chapter until it is too late! Join Chelsye Toliver, Director, Payments Education, ePayResources, to learn more about how Nacha enforces the ACH Rules and what happens when a participant does not comply.

Day 2


    8:30-9:30 am MT
  • They Are Coming For You! - Mike Richert, Chief Product Officer, Juniper Payments
  • Consumers, businesses and even banks are witnessing an explosion of cyberattacks, account takeovers, ransomware and identity theft. Covid 19 measures intended to help those affected by the pandemic ushered in a new wave of fraudulent transactions. New threats emerge monthly and sometimes, weekly. Cybersecurity is front and center with auditors and examiners. You can't run. You can't hide. But you can build and execute a strategy to better protect you and your customers. Join us as we explore existing and emerging threats and the risk mitigating steps your bank should take to help prevent or lessen financial loss and reputational ruin.

    9:45 - 10:45 am MT
  • Changes to the ACH Rules in 2021 - Chelsye Toliver, ePayResources
  • Nine new ACH Rules took effect in 2021 related to Limitation on Warranty Claims and Meaningful Modernization. Most of them were straightforward and easy to implement; however, there are two rules sets that caused some confusion within the industry. The Limitation on Warranty Claims rules took effect June 30, 2021 and placed a limit on the length of time an RDFI can make a breach of warranty claim against and ODFI. Prior to June 30 the statute of limitations was based on state law and varied between states. With the implementation of this rule, Nacha has established a standard for all ACH participants. The Meaningful Modernization rules take effect September 17, 2021 and are meant to bring the ACH Rules more in line with how we make payments in today's digital environment. In a supplemental Rules ballot that was released in August 2021, Nacha issued some clarifications to the original Meaningful Modernization rule amendments. Join Chelsye Toliver, Director, Payments Education, ePayResources, to learn more about these rules.

    11:00 am - 12:00 pm MT
  • Cannabis Banking: How to Mitigate High Risk - Becky Burrell-Postar, Partner at Higher-Risk Deposit Compliance Solutions & Lonnie Talbert, President & COO at Southwest Capital Bank
