InfoSight Survey, FinCEN Advisory
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues have published TIPs Bulletin 14-15 (Technical Information and Procedures Bulletin), which addresses how MasterCard is revising its zero-liability rule in the United States by simplifying the language and applying the rule to all MasterCard-branded POS and ATM transactions (PIN-based).

Prior to this change, the “zero liability” applied to non-PIN-based transactions only.

2014 InfoSight User Survey
If your credit union uses League InfoSight, then your opinion to its annual survey counts!

Please take a few minutes to answer this important user survey to help those managing InfoSight learn how your credit union uses it, what you like about it, and what you think could be improved. The survey will be available from now until Sept. 1.

Past responses have been used to help guide discussions about enhancing InfoSight and implement suggestions.

FinCEN is seeking to highlight the importance of a strong culture of BSA/AML compliance for senior management, leadership and owners of all financial institutions subject to FinCEN’s regulations regardless of size or industry sector.
