Minimizing Threats Involving Malware & Cyber Scams - Chris R. Gill, CUNA Mutual Group 

Bad guys avoid firewalls, intrusion detection systems, multifactor authentication, and other protections to get at your members’ data and accounts. In fact, they use your too-often trusting employees and members as their unwitting accomplices. Fraudsters are relentless in exploiting weakness in your layered security controls to takeover member accounts through online banking and network vulnerabilities to steal member data. Hacked passwords, email attachments containing stealthy malicious malware, and social engineering through employee or member contact can cause significant damage for your credit union.

During this session, you will:

  • Learn how cyber thieves compromise accounts through online banking and attack organizations to steal data at breakneck speed 
  • Address the newest threat twists including data extortion
  • Identify actionable steps that you can take to protect your credit union
