(Jan. 15, 2021) Mark your calendars for four upcoming events from NASCUS in the months ahead – including the week after next.
- Jan. 25: NASCUS sponsors a webinar (for members only) outlining the Solar Winds/Orion security breach (by Russian actors), and its impact on the state system (both regulators and credit unions). The 90-minute session will take an in-depth look at the security breach, which was originally estimated to have affected about 18,0000 customers of the Solar Winds firm, and its Orion product – including a number of big federal agencies (such as the Treasury Department). There is no cost for the event, but it is open to members only.
- March 16: The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, the Wisconsin Credit Union League and NASCUS team up to provide this annual session that looks at national and state issues (including the impact of COVID-19), duties, liabilities and protections of credit union directors, and succession and strategic planning. This is a virtual session that runs from 9 a.m. to noon (central time).
- March 17-18: NASCUS National Meeting (for state regulators only). This virtual meeting looks at the latest issues facing supervision and regulation of the state system, while also offering state regulators a forum where they can share ideas, discuss common issues, and uncover trends. The event this year will be virtual; registration is open only to state regulators.
- Summer: NASCUS Cybersecurity Conference with CUNA is scheduled to be held (with the precise date/time to be announced at a later time). The event has become the premier cybersecurity event within the credit union system, looking at the latest developments, trends and techniques for ensuring security of credit union systems. Like many other events in 2021, the cybersecurity conference will be held virtually.
