SPECIAL NOTICE: New CFPB Credit Reporting Guidance Issued
The CFPB recently issued a Special Edition Supervisory Highlights focusing exclusively on consumer credit reporting. From dispute resolution to furnisher data accuracy, the notice covers a wide range of consumer-protection concerns. Taken from years of examination and complaint experience, the guidance is intended as a warning of increased regulatory scrutiny and rulemaking activity. In this heightened risk area, you can't afford to ignore these critical clues. This webinar will fully incorporate the new CFPB guidance and best practices.
The credit reporting function has taken on added significance in recent years with increased borrower awareness of the power of the credit score, the rise of the CFPB, regulations and complaint tracking, and highly motivated plaintiff attorneys. Credit reporting is one of the most cited consumer concerns and has therefore received extra attention from the CFPB, examiners, and consumer-protection attorneys. From policies and procedures to quality assurance and organizational charts, this essential function impacts every financial institution and there are some basic steps you can take to increase efficiency, reduce risks, and calm your compliance nerves.
Fortunately, the regulations, examination guidance, and hard-earned experience create a detailed model of a fully compliant credit reporting function – if you know where to look. This webinar will focus on the unique operational and compliance challenges posed by credit reporting disputes. From automated disputes, to direct disputes, and the gray areas in between, this session will provide a common-sense approach to FCRA dispute compliance and management. Join us to learn how to develop a clean and manageable credit reporting process.
