Attention Credit Union Industry Leaders!
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cordially invites you to participate in the National Credit Union Information Sharing & Analysis Organization (NCU-ISAO) Virtual Tabletop Exercise (VTTX) on August 16, 2017, from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (EDT). The event is open to members and nonmembers of the NCU-ISAO, including credit unions, CUSOs, and Cores.
This VTTX is developed in coordination with the DHS National Cyber Exercise and Planning Program ,(NCEPP) and NCU-ISAO partners. The VTTX will be broadcasting from the FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI) in Emmitsburg, MD and will be televised via live video feed from the
distributed exercise sites listed below.
The purpose of the NCU-ISAO VTTX is to raise awareness of cyber risk management, cyber related planning, and other issues related to cyber incident prevention, protection, and response.
The exercise seeks to create an opportunity for stakeholders to:
• Enhance the cyber incident preparedness of the Nation’s Credit Unions.
• Examine cybersecurity information sharing processes during both steady-state and incident response.
• Discuss plans, policies, and procedures that guide cyber incident response actions.
• Discuss the resources and capabilities required to respond to a cyber incident.
The NCU-ISAO VTTX is designed for all levels of understanding of cyber security, though it may be best suited for those in your organization with cyber and related incident response knowledge & responsibilities.
Exercise material provided by DHS will enable participants to explore various issues related to cybersecurity. The VTTX format allows players to consider aspects of cyber preparedness within their own institutions, participate in break-out sessions with other credit unions, and to hear best practices
and lessons learned from peer organizations.
Due to very limited space, a maximum of 3 people from any single credit union may attend, and registrations will be accepted only until event space is full. Additional CU members may join via audio teleconference. NCU-ISAO members unable to attend in person may also dial in to join via audio teleconference.
On-Site registration is August 9, 2017.
Teleconference registration is August 11, 2017.
