CUNA eSchool to address latest industry issues in IT compliance and security

MADISON, WI (October 13, 2014) – CUNA announced today that its upcoming CUNA Information & Technology Compliance eSchool will address industry-wide concerns in cyber security, mitigating risk in mobile financial services and the compliance implications of a credit union data breach. Registration and details for this eSchool, taking place Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to Noon, November 7 – December 12 2014, are available at

“Data security has been on a lot of people’s minds lately,” said Kathy Smith, Instructional Design Manager at CUNA. “And as a result, IT regulation has undergone some crucial adjustments over the last year. It’s up to credit unions to not only keep up with those new developments in compliance, but to uphold their responsibility to their members by adopting the best security practices available.”

Tailored to address the responsibilities of various credit union roles, CUNA Information & Technology Compliance eSchool will provide an in-depth look at the FFIEC’s information security standards for the areas of compliance, risk management, information technology, training and vendor management. Attendees will leave with a working set of best practices for IT compliance, from the basics of vendor management to password protection to high risk behaviors in electronic communications that should be avoided.

Session dates and topics:

  • November 7, 2014: Vendor Management – The Big Picture
  • November 14, 2014: Social Engineering the Credit Union
  • November 21, 2014: IT Examination Hot Spots and Examination Focus
  • December 5, 2014: Electronic Discovery in Litigation
  • December 12, 2014: IT Compliance and Enterprise Risk Management

To provide more credit union staff the opportunity to access detailed information regarding their duties, CUNA eSchools allow attendees to see and hear a presentation, ask questions of the speaker and refer to handouts. Developed by experts from across the industry, topics span all credit union business areas to reach staff, managers and board members nationwide.
