Also, many borrowers still have large holdings of income-producing or rental real estate. Whether directly financing these assets or including the income stream(s) in your overall credit analysis, it is important to understand key analytical concepts in evaluating commercial real estate cash flow. This program demonstrates (from case studies) the key variables and concepts for determining real estate cash flow, plus primary analytical techniques such as transaction level stress-testing and compiling a global cash flow that includes all of the holding of the investor/owner/guarantor. We cover where to find information from existing sources, such as tax returns, and what additional information may be needed, such as customer rent rolls.   This seminar will address the following: Net operating income (NOI) components and concepts Understanding key variables within NOI: vacancy, management fees, replacement reserves and capital expenditures Understanding cap rates and how they are used to link cash flow to property value Using tax returns and customer rent rolls, plus issues with commercial leases Unique characteristics of the major types of real estate Transaction-level stress-testing of debt service coverage (DSC) and loan-to-value (LTV) How to use a sample worksheet to explore the major issues, including stress-testing Issues faced in the global analysis of the various holdings of the borrower/guarantor Taking the global analysis beyond the face values of guarantees (contingent liabilities analysis) Using the cash flow analysis as part of ongoing loan monitoring, including estimated property values, not in lieu of appraisals, but as a key part of the overall CRE process Brief look at residential rentals and related cash flow and property value issues   Target Audience: Consumer lenders, mortgage bankers, private bankers, small business lenders, commercial lenders, credit analysts, loan review specialists, special assets officers, lending managers and credit officers Read More

Presenter:   Buzz Hillestad, SBS CyberSecurity This 90-minute program will be presented live on: May 17, 10:00-11:30 a.m. Central Time Recording available through: August 17, 2019 Price: $275   When notified of a malware infection on a bank or customer system, it is the digital equivalent of being notified about a robbery. In a robbery situation, we would preserve evidence and investigate the crime. All too often in the digital world, we respond to malware infections with intentions to remove it and get the system back into production. When really, we need to enact our incident response plan and evaluate how we might have just been robbed – digitally.   It’s more difficult in a digital robbery to immediately identify if data or money were stolen. We should conduct a digital investigation to ensure the crime is still not occurring, identify what was stolen, and identify who stole it. Information must also be collected from the employees and clearly documented. This discussion will overview different types of incidents that are more frequent for financial institutions and illustrate how to prepare for them. The following are key focuses for our digital robbery discussion: Trending cybercrime and malware threats Examination of which IT systems are affected Breakdown of business process to explore who is affected Standard Incident Response Procedures Basic digital forensic   Target Audience:  Incident Response Team, Information Security Officer, IT Manager, Risk Officer, Internal Auditor, and IT focused resources looking to assist in governance or implementation of Incident Response.   This program qualifies for the following CPE Credits through the SBS Institute:  1.5 CPEs*: CBSM, CBSTP, CBIH ISC2*: Estimated 1.5 hrs.
