Top Cyber Threats Every Credit Union Must Guard Against – Thursday August 1st, 2:30-3:00pm

Cybercriminals are taking hacking to the next level by leveraging ever-more-sophisticated toolsets and increasingly mature techniques. But not all threats are created equal. Some can do massive damage to your brand reputation, interrupt your CU’s services, and most importantly – expose your members’ private data. The secret for effective cybersecurity is to know where to prioritize your efforts and direct resources to protect your CU. Madison Iler, LMG Security’s Compliance Director and trainer to FFIEC examiners, shows you how to guard against the top current threats including:
  • Business email compromise –  a rapidly growing way that cybercriminals intercept your emails and redirect money.
  • Banking trojans – software that infects your computers, steals your passwords, and transfers funds.
  • Ransomware – attackers’ top choice for cyber extortion.
Madison gives you real-time, practical guidance you can use to protect your CU from the latest threats – and rest easy knowing you are doing everything you can to protect your members from cyber attacks.
