WESCO Net announces new security ed program
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (5/12/11)--WESCO Net, a network solutions provider and division of CU*Answers, is offering a new security education series. Among the topics to be covered in the series are computer security awareness, social engineering awareness and avoidance, using network tools security, and business continuity planning. The classes are designed for credit union staff members and seek to improve computer and data security through education. “Security education is an important part of a credit union’s security posture and an essential ingredient in any security awareness program,” said David Wordhouse, vice president of network technologies for WESCO Net. “These classes are designed to elevate employee awareness of various tactics commonly used by attackers and provide solid best practices to thwart them. Arming employees with the knowledge presented in these courses further safeguards member data.” WESCO Net offers the classes through its onsite training facility, remotely via its online classroom, or on site. Classes are offered free of charge to clients of WESCO Net and CU*Answers. Also, WESCO Net has partnered with Cisco WebEx to deliver a support center to WescoNet’s client base “This platform provides improved oversight and reporting on remote maintenance activities, which is an important consideration for anyone using remote technical assistance service or requiring a vendor due diligence policy,” explained Matt Sawtell, systems manager for WESCO Net. “Wesco is independently audited to SAS 70 Level II standards and it is essential that support center activities are fully compliant with those standards,” he added.
