From malicious attacks designed to shut down your credit union’s infrastructure to ransomware threats costing millions of dollars, all businesses are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Financial institutions — including your credit union — are 300 times more likely than other businesses to be targeted.

Registration is open for a March workshop that will help credit unions respond to cyber-incidents and guard against cyberattacks.

“Your Credit Union is Under Attack, Now What?” will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 26 at the New York Credit Union Association’s headquarters.

During the event, legal, compliance and operational experts will convene on a panel to discuss the lessons learned and additional steps credit unions can take to better guard against increasingly common attacks.

The program will include information on:

  • designing a cybersecurity plan that reflects the specific needs of credit unions;
  • putting a plan in operation;
  • scenarios to test the ability of credit union teams to respond to cyberattacks;
  • legal considerations to keep in mind once a cyber incident has occurred; and
  • how to best communicate with members about cyberattacks.

Visit the Association’s website for more information or to register for the event.
