The new members of BankInfoSecurity.com’s Advisory Board are from every region of the country, and represent a wide range of asset sizes of national banks, community banks and savings and loan institutions. In its first meeting, the nine board members talked about some of the issues on every banker’s mind. “What did the examiner look for during the last exam?” and “What are some of the top information security issues facing your institution?” brought forward some illuminating answers. The Board will add value by evaluating topics and will help the team at BankInfoSecurity.com pinpoint the most important issues facing banks today.
One thing is certain, the increased drum beat of regulatory compliance is only getting louder, and the need to protect consumer private information are topping most institution’s lists of top priority action items, especially in light of increasing data breaches, such as the 46+ million accounts hacked from TJX.
The BankInfoSecurity.com Advisory Board will meet quarterly, and members will serve for a period of one year. The list of board members may be viewed by clicking to: http://www.bankinfosecurity.com/adv_board.php
