Mid-Atlantic Corporate conference spotlights security
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (9/8/11)--About 70 credit unions were represented at Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU’s first Information Technology (IT) and Security Conference Aug. 16-17 in Harrisburg, Pa. The conference keynote speaker was Brian Krebs, editor of www.krebsonsecurity.com. In 2010, Krebs was named the top cyber-security journalist in the U.S. at the 2010 RSA Conference, during which his blog was named the best non-technical security blog. Krebs said the majority of victims of security breaches do not report hacks to law enforcement because it puts their companies at a competitive disadvantage. He investigates these crimes to help potential victims better understand how security breaches happen and avoid falling victim entirely. In his presentation, Krebs also discussed the types of schemes attackers will use to attack credit unions, provided tips for dealing with them, and addressed how to spot red flags for possible breaches. The IT and Security Conference also featured 13 sessions geared toward credit unions. Other industry specialists speaking included Tyler Britten, EMC2 Corp.; Angie Singer Keating, Reclamere Inc.; Richard Brackett, Dell SecureWorks; Jill Hearn, EMC2 Corp.; Mark Bell, Digital Defense Inc.; Timothy Maier, CSB Technology Partners; Kirk Drake, Ongoing Operations and Rocky Giglio, Arraya Solutions. Ongoing Operations is a CUNA Strategic Services provider.
