Free Credit Union Webinar: Good Governance: The Board / Cyber Security Partnership

Webinar – Good Governance: The Board / Cyber Security Partnership

When:  December 10th, 2019 at 2:00PM Eastern Time

Webinar Length:  1 Hour

Content Description: 

Today’s Boards have many duties in addition to the new focus on cyber. Additionally, today’s Boards can sometimes lack deep cyber security experience.

As a result, the cyber security function may have to take the lead in developing the communications and measures. The design of meaningful, easily understood metrics that connect to the CU is foundational to building a strong partnership.

This session discusses the strategies and measurements a cyber security group should establish for Board communications. We will discuss strategies in use by CU’s today, that bring strong results and meet business and regulatory needs.

Attendees to this session will also obtain some basic templates for use in presenting cyber-related information to boards and organizational leadership.

NOTE: This event is restricted to Credit Unions and other related industry organizations such as Leagues and CUSOs.  Event approval by the host is required.
