MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (9/9/15)--The Cooperative Credit Union Association (CCUA) will host its first tristate, video-conference training event later this month, it announced this week. The event will cover the National Credit Union Administration’s overview of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Cybersecurity Assessment Tool.
With cyberthreats mounting, the FFIEC developed the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool to help financial institutions identify risks and determine cybersecurity preparedness. The tool also allows financial institutions to track their progress in becoming more secure over time.
“The scalable tool is designed for financial institutions of all sizes and levels of sophistication to evaluate whether their cybersecurity preparedness is aligned with their risk,” said Bill Nagle, association senior vice president of professional development.
The multi-location event, scheduled for Sept. 24, will take place live in Marlborough, Mass., at the CCUA's headquarters, as well as remotely at America’s Credit Union Museum in Manchester, N.H., and Navigant CU, Smithfield, R.I.
Satellite audiences will be connected live to the session using the association's new videoconferencing network, with interactive high-definition video and audio.
Similarly, the Northwest Credit Union Association and the Idaho Credit Union League recently announced a collaboration that will bolster training and networking opportunities for members of both leagues through video-networking conferences.
