Original Air Date: Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Presenter: Seth Jaffe, vice president of incident response, LEO Cyber Security

Description:  The NCUA has commented that a "credit union must take appropriate steps to protect information that it provides to a service provider,” and it is not alone in issuing that guidance. Numerous authorities recommend or even mandate cybersecurity management of third parties.

This session will consider methods of implementing that oversight, discussing various organizational structures between the IT security department, procurement, legal, and the business unit. Security arrangements between a credit union and its vendors vest in the master agreement, and we will review certain contractual security provisions that dictate the relationship between them. But don’t worry; it will not be all law and compliance. We will have a bit of fun along the way as we learn how to protect our security programs against third-party breaches.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understanding of a credit union’s obligations to impose security provisions
  • Organizational structures for implementing a third-party security review program
  • Overview of contractual security provisions
