Cybersecurity Symposium agenda – Aug. 1-2 – taking form

Feb. 17, 2016 -- Six things you can do right now to improve your information security is one of the featured sessions at the NASCUS/CUNA Cybersecurity Symposium, Aug. 1-2 in Chicago.

The two-day event, held at the Westin Chicago River North Hotel, picks up where the first two popular annual programs (in 2014 and 2015) left off, with an emphasis on cutting-edge techniques, best practices and procedures that protect credit union organizations from the latest threats.

The 2016 program includes more than 13 hours of educational presentations, discussions, demonstrations and panel/group discussions led by cybersecurity experts from across the nation.

The “six things” session will offer a half dozen (and likely more) techniques and tips to fine tune credit union information security programs, and is built for both credit union practitioners and examiners alike.

Other top sessions at the Aug. 1-2 program – which is sponsored in partnership between NASCUS and CUNA – include:
•             Understanding the laws protecting members’ information;
•             Choosing the right cybersecurity risk assessment tool;
•             Cybersecurity, anti-money laundering, and identity theft red flags;
•             Rightsizing the cybersecurity budget; and,
•             Is it safe? Using the cloud.

Leading the program again this year is Tom Schauer of CliftonLarsonAllen in Seattle (formerly CEO of TrustCC). Practicing IT security, audit and compliance since 1986, Schauer started his career as a security analyst and BCP coordinator at a $3.5-billion regional bank.
