Roundtable Event

IT Policies & Procedures

10.29.2014 - 10.29.2014 (tech)

More than ever, Credit Unions are being challenged to stay current with new IT regulatory requirements and a dynamic security threat landscape. This affects what controls Credit Unions establish to stay in step with those changes, and it specifically affects the development and/or modification of IT-related policy. While there are increasing demands in regulatory compliance, this does not always correlate with an increase in your operating budget.

In this roundtable, we will examine two approaches for dealing with the increased regulatory burdon. For credit unions who wish to manage the process internally, Elizabeth Allison will present a 5 Step, Do-It-Yourself guide to developing the framework for your security program, writing the policies, procedures, standards, guidelines, and how to implement them in your credit union.

Alternatively, Michael Barrack will share how credit unions without sufficient internal resources can work with an outside vendor to meet these regulatory challenges with command and confidence.
