NASCUS Announces Inaugural Cyber Security Symposium

August 7, 2014 The National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) announced today plans for an inaugural symposium focusing on cyber security.

The NASCUS Cyber Security Symposium, which will be held Nov. 13-14 at the Hyatt Arlington, located at 1325 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Va., is being hosted by NASCUS and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The agenda is currently being rounded out, and will include such sessions as “Assessing the Cyber Risk Profile for Credit Unions of All Sizes,” “The Target Data Breach,” “Payment Systems” and “The First 24 Hours: Responding to a Cyber Security Event,” among others. Credit unions, regulators and those who work with the financial industry as a whole are invited to attend the event.

“Cyber security is increasingly the focus of regulatory attention and will factor into credit unions’ strategic planning as they redirect resources to bolstering their cyber preparedness,” said NASCUS President and CEO Mary Martha Fortney. “Furthermore, cyber security preparedness is moving from an IT staff issue to a board level strategic issue. We hope to educate regulators and credit unions alike through this one-of-a-kind educational event.”

Tom Schauer, CEO of TrustCC, which conducts security assessments, IT audits and reviews and IT risk assessments, security awareness and training and social engineering, and offers advisory services, will emcee the event.

Registration will be opening soon for the inaugural NASCUS Cyber Security Symposium. Please check the NASCUS website for more information, or contact Brian Knight, at
