Recent safe deposit vault burglaries, devastating fires, Tropical Storms Sandy and Allison, Hurricanes Harvey, Ike, Katrina, Rita, Wilma and Andrew and damaging tornadoes, raging floods, and many other nationwide disasters have significantly impacted our safe deposit industry. Following these tragic events, financial institutions have been confronted with some very difficult challenges, decisions, and very significant lawsuits.

Did you inherit the safe deposit area and then start wondering what liability might exist? Historically, this responsibility has been routinely passed from employee to employee with very little attention given to existing procedures or documentation.

Unfortunately, only after a burglary, disaster or lawsuit occurs does management turn its attention to this area. Whether you have 50 boxes or 5,000, this presentation provides a realistic and well-organized method of reviewing and auditing your procedures before a catastrophe occurs. Your speaker knows first hand what to look for; from the most common errors to the not so common, but potentially costly mistakes. This presentation will help you review your own internal procedures.

Covered Topics:

  • How could $300 million in box contents disappear during a safe deposit vault burglary?
  • What details about recent safe deposit burglaries have TV reporters covered recently?
  • What happened to all the safe deposit boxes after fire totaled four branches recently?
