The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all organizations in ways completely unanticipated at the beginning of this year.  This abrupt change has heightened the importance of relying on electronic signatures and notarization. 

Join regulatory counsel, Dena Somers, for a webinar discussing the applicable laws and practical guidance for ensuring valid e-signatures and notarizations.  This informative two-hour banking webinar will provide an overview of the concepts, laws, regulatory requirements and cyber security challenges related to electronic signatures and remote notarization. 

Whether your institution is considering an e-signature solution or has already made the switch to digital banking, this information-packed webinar explores the requirements, challenges, and best strategies for going paperless.  

Remote Online Notarizations (RON)

We’ll discuss best practices for authenticating e-signatures and how to avoid common mistakes to avoid when moving to electronic signatures. For organizations considering remote online/electronic notarizations (RON), we’ll also provide an explanation of a remote electronic notarization process, followed by an overview of the legal framework supporting RON. 

Learn how you can respond and manage common challenges and risks that banks should evaluate before utilizing a RON process. 

We will also hold a live Q&A at the end of the training. You can submit your question when you register or during  the webinar in our “Q&A” feature.
