CUNA to Host Post Data Breach Webinar

CUNA will join CUNA Mutual and the Financial Services Information Sharing Center (FS-ISAC) for a webinar on mitigating fraud risk in the wake of the Equifax data breach. Registration is available for the call, which is open to CUNA and CUNA Mutual Group members only and is scheduled for September 21 at 12 p.m. (Central).

Equifax announced a breach earlier this month that impacts 143 million American consumers, with an additional 209,000 credit card numbers also being stolen.

The webinar will address:

  • A background of recent events;
  • A briefing on how stolen credentials can be re-used on the dark web;
  • Ways to proactively change fraud strategy after a large data breach;
  • Best practices in fraud monitoring/detection and identity theft;
  • A look at the next steps for the financial sector; and
  • Questions and answers with presenters.

CUNA continues to monitor ways credit unions may have been affected by the Equifax breach. In addition, CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle has called on Equifax to share additional information about the breach and affected parties, and requested a briefing from the company itself.
