IT Governance: What the Board & Supervisory Committee Need to Know to Manage the Credit Union’s Information Technology Assets

Fraudsters are constantly evolving. As defensive measures improve, tactics are changed to evade them. This session will use statistics from global information security studies combined with first-hand experience with network-penetration assessments and hacker forensic investigations to provide attendees with up-to-the-minute trends and practical advice to improve information security. Information security is a fundamental process requiring ongoing management to create the proper organizational culture.

After this session attendees will:

  • Think differently about the fundamental problem of information security
  • Have resources to better identify emerging risk issues
  • Have clear strategies that make a profound short-term impact on the risk-management posture
  • Be better equipped to manage ongoing risk


  • Fundamental principles of sound information security risk management
  • People, rules, and tools
  • Attacker motivations
  • The “big picture” threat landscape
  • Top trends that lead to “successful” attacks
  • Key controls your credit union can implement immediately to improve the security posture

This informative session is designed for credit union board and supervisory committee members, senior management, internal auditors, and IT management.
