Thursday, May 2, 2013 6:10 AM

The privacy of member information is under the constant threat of attack and credit unions can have significant exposure if the privacy of a member’s information is compromised. Brenda Barrett Healey, Duggins Wren Mann & Romero, LLP, says credit unions are charged with protecting this information from unauthorized disclosure and must comply with a myriad of laws and regulations in carrying out this duty.

At the Texas Credit Union League’s (TCUL) Compliance, Audit & HR Conference June 19-21 in Austin, Healey will present “Current Developments in Privacy Issues Affecting Credit Unions.” Among other things, Healey will review select new developments in the laws addressing privacy as it relates to your members’ financial information.

This three-day conference is designed to empower attedees with the tools and information needed to broaden their knowledge, develop their skills and expand their network.
