Tech-Sec Conference kicks off today in Vegas

Feb. 11, 2014 - Credit unions will learn about seven critical areas of cybersecurity affecting them and their members during a keynote message from John Sileo today at NAFCU's 2014 Technology and Security Conference, which runs through Thursday in Las Vegas.

Sileo, who appeared recently on the Rachael Ray show to discuss identity fraud risks, will provide a keynote message today titled "Personal Cybersecurity? What You Absolutely, Positively Need to Know."

"This conference couldn't have come at a more opportune time given the ongoing uncertainty in the wake of the massive data breach at Target and others affecting Neiman Marcus, Michaels Stores and other large retailers," said Dan Berger, NAFCU's president and CEO. "Credit union attendees will acquire the information they need to help their institutions anticipate changes on the evolving technological landscape and protect their bottom lines."

Tomorrow will include a full-day workshop on core processor issues. On Thursday, NAFCU Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Huntwill discuss regulations affecting technology in credit unions.

The conference will help credit unions learn about core processor contracting, maintenance and managing conversions; provide top solutions to help meet a credit union's IT and security needs; discuss the top 10 payment trends to watch for this year; and review the current efforts for legislation on third-party data breaches.

The conference runs through Thursday, Feb. 13, at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino and is open to NAFCU members and nonmembers.
