Financial Crimes

The WBA Financial Crimes Committee serves to inform and educate the Wisconsin banking industry, law enforcement, and the general public on the changing security and criminal threats to the financial sector and develops solutions to those threats. In addition, this group monitors financial crimes legislation and plans the WBA Secur-I.T. Conference. Meetings are quarterly.
