MADISON, Wis. (10/14/14)--The current cybersecurity climate is rife with threats from retailer security breaches and potential fraud, and with that in mind, the Credit Union National Association will address information technology (IT) concerns in its five-week Information and Technology Compliance eSchool.
Among the topics the five sessions will tackle are mitigating risk in mobile financial services and the compliance implications of a credit union data breach. The Friday sessions are scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon (CT) Nov. 7-Dec. 12.
