Is Your Credit Union Protecting Itself the Best It Can? Our 2016 Webinar Series Can Help Mitigate Risk

It's no secret that managing risk is critical to protecting your credit union. In fact, as credit unions grow and venture into new service offerings, risk factors also expand and can become moving targets. You’ll likely find these risks especially relevant in 2016:
  • Credential-stealing malware leading to data breaches
  • Threats and events involving extortions, kidnappings and active shooters
  • Discrimination cases related to pregnancy, religion, LGBT and gender expression
  • Advanced fraud schemes involving wire transfers, ACH debit origination and booster payments

CUNA Mutual Group Fidelity Bond policyholders can better prepare for these and other risk trends by attending our Credit Union Protection Webinars. Our Risk Management experts will host nine live webinars throughout 2016 as a no-cost, value-added benefit for policyholders.

The Credit Union Protection Webinars have had 40,000 registrants over the last five years and attendee satisfaction is consistently high. In fact, one in three attendees reports the webinars have helped them mitigate risk and/or recover from loss.

“The Credit Union Protection Webinar series is extremely popular with credit unions because it offers actionable insights on relevant topics in a very time-efficient manner,” said Theran Colwell, Director of Credit Union Protection Risk Management. “Our risk management expertise is one of our most valued and recognized resources for helping safeguard credit unions and differentiate CUNA Mutual Group from other fidelity bond providers.”
We invite all CUNA Mutual Group Bond policyholders to tune in to each webinar in our series. The first will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. CT. It will discuss the top risk trends and key mitigation insights that should be on your radar in 2016.
