A Deeper Dive Webinar Series: Best Practices for Credit Union Data Breach Preparedness
May 11, 2023 10:00am - 11:00am
Per major cybersecurity publications and recent studies…..More and more businesses and consumers (CU members) are becoming victims of identity theft and data breach events and yet most businesses and CU members are not equipped to address the problem. In this webinar, industry experts Mark Pribish and Jim McCabe will discuss while information security, governance and technology should be a critical focus for both businesses and CU members in preventing a data breach or ID theft event – an equal or more important focus should be response, resiliency, and recovery. They will discuss the reality of data breaches and identity theft and how Credit Unions and their members can be better prepared for the inevitable.
Attend this session to learn about the cyber threat landscape and how you should respond:
- Cyber threats will get more difficult and insider threats will become harder to track
- Organizations should focus on response and recovery when it comes to data breach risk management
- The threat environment changes so quickly security policies and procedures are not keeping up
- Pre and post breach planning services are critical as state and federal laws are not keeping up with evolving cyber risks
- IT and hacking are the sizzle that make the news; however, the insider threat is the primary factor in most data breaches
- The CEOs of Target and Equifax were not fired because they were hacked, they were fired because of their failed management response to their breach events
- Businesses and CU members need to be more resilient and compromise ready in the event of a data breach or ID theft event
….Best Practices currently used by hundreds of CU’s will be reviewed … and new cybersecurity capabilities are to be introduced.
