MADISON, Wis. (6/2/08)--Credit union professionals can learn how changes in global finance, media, and technology will impact credit union business, during a general session at the 2008 CUNA Technology Council Summit, July 30-Aug. 2 in Williamsburg, Va. During “Our Age of Transformation: What’s Next in Our High-Tech, Global 21st Century World?” Peter Leyden, author and former managing editor of Wired magazine, will discuss the interconnected changes taking place in technology, the economy, the media, and the restructuring of the new global order. He will explain how these developments, as well as demographical changes in the U.S., will force a political shift in the coming decade. Additional conference sessions will explore payment card industry compliance, security protection from social networks, mobile banking, information technology staff optimization, virtualization, and ATM capture and imaging. A panel discussion with seven core processors is scheduled for the conference’s final day.
