Americans with Disabilities (ADA)

Use Case for Assessing Risk on Americans with Disabilities (ADA)

Why assess the risk? The Americans with Disabilities Act gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state & local government services and telecommunications. Real or perceived non-compliance with the spirit and the letter of the Act imposes unique risks to the bank.

Who should assess the risks? Human Resources Director, Chief Administrative Officer, Chief Operating Officer

How to assess the risk: Rate the KRIs to determine if a threat would successfully exploit a vulnerability and to justify expenditures to implement countermeasures to protect the bank’s assets or reputation. Use the “Focus Risk Assessment” tool for in-depth analysis of risks and mitigation techniques.
