The CFPB recently published a CARD Act Report. While subtitled "a review of the impact of the CARD Act on the consumer credit market," the report's most significant information for financial institutions was its highlighting of various "areas of concern" in the credit card market that "may pose risks for consumers." In the report, the CFPB described its plans to take a closer look at these areas, some of which have already been the subject of CFPB enforcement actions.

In this webinar, we will focus on helping financial institutions identify which of their credit card products, practices, and disclosures could be in the CFPB's crosshairs and what changes they may want to consider implementing to reduce potential risks.
