Best Practices for Writing SARs

Writing SARs for your Audience – Are your SARs Being Read?

Filing SARs is a part of every BSA officer’s job. Whether you file 10 or 100 SARs a month, it is important to know who’s reading your SARs and what type of action is taken upon them.

Learn from an experienced staff attorney who your SAR readers are, as well as how those teams operate. We will cover what happens to your SAR after you file it. Then we’ll provide real world examples of SARs that are helpful and SARs that are not.

How do you craft your SARs to your audience? Join us as we discuss best practices to ensure someone is reading your SARs.
