E-Sign and Electronic Signatures in the COVID Era

The federal “Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act” (“E-SIGN Act”) and the California Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (“Cal ETA”) together address the legality of electronic contracts, records and signatures. Having a solution that provides an alternative to in-person dependencies can also be leveraged as part of an institution’s business continuity processes, such as with the current COVID-19 crisis and resulting stay-at-home orders. One risk in relying on electronic signatures in particular is that the institution may have difficulties proving that the named customer or borrower is actually the person who is electronically signing the relevant documents. To reduce this risk, financial institutions need to ensure that they are able to identify and authenticate the customer or borrower in connection with the electronic signature. Download Handout Here!

FFIEC's Joint Statement on Security in a Cloud Computing Environment

On April 30, 2020, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) issued a Joint Statement on Security in a Cloud Computing Environment. The Joint Statement describes three common cloud service models, including Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (Paas) and Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas). The Joint Statement also breaks down risks associated with cloud services and provides examples of relevant risk management practices including those that would apply to governance, security management, change management, resilience and recovery, audits and controls assessments. While the Joint Statement does not set up any new regulatory expectations, it does give helpful insight into anticipated risk management practices for financial institutions’ safe and sound use of third-party cloud computing services. Please join us for our May 15 BCG Telephone Briefing during which we will discuss these timely topics and provide practical insights and recommendations. Download Handout Here!
