NEW CYBERSECURITY TABLETOP EXERCISE FOR CREDIT UNIONS >$250m IN ASSETS

ARLINGTON, Va., and MADISON, Wis. (August 19, 2020) – NASCUS and CUNA are now accepting registration for Cybersecurity Response Exercise for credit unions greater than $250M webinar, scheduled for August 28 from 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. CT. During this tabletop exercise, executive-level credit union professionals and examiners will work through a plausible, simulated cybersecurity event. Credit union participants will be testing their current processes and procedures while credit union examiners will be determining how they would identify, analyze and fine-tune their supervisory approach.

Participants will receive a confidential After Action Report (AAR) that shares findings to highlight opportunities for improving general readiness.

Attendees will:

  • Test their ability to mitigate a cyber disruption using current cybersecurity measures
  • Detect areas for improvement in cybersecurity preparedness
  • Identify opportunities for cooperation between credit unions and credit union examiners

This event is co-delivered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors and Credit Union National Association.

Registration for this webinar ends on August 27 and space is limited for this cybersecurity exercise. Learn more and reserve your spot here.
