NAFCU’S Berger recognizes National Cybersecurity Awareness Month; Urges greater vigilance
WASHINGTON, DC (October 1, 2013) — National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) President and CEO Dan Berger today urged increased vigilance in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
“Cybercriminals continue to hone their hacking skills and become more sophisticated in their attacks. This ever-evolving cyber landscape demands that credit unions maintain a keen level of vigilance to stay one step ahead and safeguard their systems as well as their 96 million members.
“Focusing the spotlight on cybersecurity nationally underscores its vital importance to us all and NAFCU is committed to promoting greater readiness on this crucial issue.”
NAFCU is a founding member of the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC). Established in 2002, the FSSCC’s mission is to strengthen the resiliency of the financial services sector against attacks and other threats to the nation’s critical infrastructure.
The Department of Homeland Security designated October as National Cybersecurity Awareness month 10 years ago and cooperates with the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center to promote events and initiatives raising awareness about cyber threats.
The National Association of Federal Credit Unions is the only national organization that focuses exclusively on federal issues affecting credit unions, representing its members before the federal government and the public.
