Understanding the Board’s Role in Cyber Security Risk

Cyber security has received a lot of recent media attention. Gone are the days when embezzlements, robberies, or forgery were the only security concerns. Our institutions operate in a rapidly changing environment where technology is an essential element of operations as consumers demand more remote services. From Internet and mobile banking, to online bill paying, to a variety of other technology-related services, the financial services industry has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Do you know how a data security event will impact your institution? Is your data safe and secure? Everyone from the newest teller to the board chair needs to understand the basics of cyber security and how to integrate an effective data security program. Data security is a definite risk to financial institutions and recent litigation trends make it apparent that the board of directors has a clear responsibility to ensure the security of the information entrusted to their institutions. Join us to learn more about the responsibilities for all stakeholders with a special emphasis on the board’s role in data security.
