Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council Discusses Cyber-Security
Last week, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) staff attended the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC) all-day meeting to discuss coordination efforts between federal government entities and the financial services sector on critical infrastructure, cyber-security, and crisis management. Senior staff from the Department of Homeland Security, Treasury, and other government entities discussed current critical infrastructure initiatives and their ongoing work with the FSSCC and the financial sector. The FSSCC also reviewed the financial sector’s responses to, and information-sharing efforts during, Hurricane Sandy. In addition, the meeting focused on FSSCC Committee projects and initiatives to improve sector coordination. CUNA continues to participate on the FSSCC Policy Committee with the financial industry on critical infrastructure issues, including with cyber-security developments and the potential, upcoming Executive Order on cyber-security.
