A ransomware attack could inflict serious financial damage and pose reputation risk. NCUA is teaming up with the FBI, Treasury Department, and the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions to host a webinar to discuss how to protect credit unions and members.
Registration for this Oct. 13 webinar, “Ransomware in the Financial Sector,” is now open. The event is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. ET and last approximately two hours. There is no charge. All the presentations will have real-world examples to illustrate the potential impact of ransomware attacks. The webinar will include a question-and-answer period.
Staff from the NCUA’s Office of Credit Union Resources and Expansion and Office of Examination and Insurance will moderate a panel featuring: Ted P. Delacourt, FBI Cyber Division; Thomas Theune: Deputy Director, Office of Credit Unions, Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions; and Steven Curran, Treasury Department, Office of Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure Protection.
Participants will be able to log into the webinar and view it on their computers or mobile devices using the registration link. They should allow pop-ups from this website. The webinar will be closed captioned and archived on the NCUA’s Learning Management System approximately one week following the live event.
