  2. How to Respond to a Cyber Attack
    Despite the best organizational policies and strong technical support structures, cyber attacks can still happen. If your credit union suspects that the integrity of its computer network or information system has been compromised, responding appropriately will help minimize business disruptions and reduce your potential financial burden. Join speaker Joseph Coltson, Partner, Cybercrime with KPMG for practical tips on building an incident response plan in the event of a system breach, malware exposure or other security event. Joseph will also discuss current trends to empower your credit union to prepare in advance for this type of eventuality.

Regional Training

New directors want a better understanding of their role and of the business for which they are accountable. Experienced directors want to be-in-the know about current governance issues and trends. Both groups are in constant search for ways of strengthening their corporate governance practices. The highly respected Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA) Program has been designed to meet these needs.

Throughout the year, intensive classroom CUDA courses are offered over a series of days in regions across Canada. These sessions are open to all directors and provide the value of networking opportunities between training.
