Calculating ACH Peak Risk
Posted August 21, 2019
As ACH origination volume continues to grow, FFIEC examiners and ACH auditors have increased their focus on ensuring existing risk management systems and controls adequately address the risks contained within the ACH Network. Moreover, the expansion of organizations originating on behalf of other companies introduces new risk and an increased burden to not only “know your customer” but to “know your customers’ customer”. Failure to implement appropriate controls is viewed as an unsafe and unsound practice which can result in increased credit, compliance, reputation, strategic and transaction risk.
