2014 Tech-Sec Conference savings end Friday

Credit union leaders and staff planning to attend NAFCU's Technology and Security Conference, slated Feb. 11-13 in Las Vegas, should register by midnight Friday to take advantage of combined savings for registering early.

The earlybird savings deadline for this year's Tech-Sec Conference is Friday. An additional savings of $100 applies to each Tech-Sec (or any 2014 conference) registration submitted by midnight Friday using the HOLIDAY code.

"The 2014 Technology and Security Conference will give credit union leaders and staff the tools they need to guard their systems and member data amid the rise of third-party data breaches and other cyber threats," said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. "This is a must-attend event for any credit union team charged with the protection of members' personal and financial privacy."

This year's keynote speaker is John Sileo. Sileo is a past identity theft victim whose struggles are detailed in the award-winning book "Stolen Lives: Identity Theft Prevention Made Simple." His session – Personal Cybersecurity? What You Absolutely, Positively Need to Know – will look at seven critical areas of cybersecurity.
