Rayleen Pirnie, RP Payments Risk Consulting Services, LLC

There’s so much buzz today about cybersecurity, cyber-breaches, cyber-attacks, cyber-assessments, and cyber-threats that it’s easy to get lost and hard to uncover exactly what you need to understand as a Board Member. All the buzz can create cyber-fatigue if you let it.

This session will separate fact from hype and examine key aspects of what Board Members need to understand about cybercrimes and cybersecurity. You play a pivotal role in the safety and soundness of your credit union, but do you know the questions to ask and what information should be presented regularly for your analysis? Attendees will leave this session with actionable items, valuable resources, and key questions to ask to help measure your cybersecurity success.

 This session explores:

  • Cybercrime facts and the biggest threats to credit unions
  • 12 questions every Board Member should know the answer to
  • What should regularly be presented to the Board regarding cybersecurity
  • A primer on Cybercrime Incident Response Plans
  • Your best resources to combat cybercrimes
