NAFCU’s Berger: Data security top challenge for credit unions

first_imgNAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger will outline the top cyber- and data security challenges for credit unions and will provide legislative solutions during a hearing this morning before the House Small Business Committee in which he will serve as the only financial institutions witness.Berger will testify before the panel alongside witnesses from Intel Security Group and the National Small Business Association. The hearing, “Small Business, Big Threat: Protecting Small Businesses from Cyber Attacks,” will focus specifically on what Congress can do to help combat the increase in recent cyberattacks and data security breaches.Berger will emphasize that credit unions and other financial institutions already protect consumers’ personal data under the provisions of the 1999 Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. He will note there is no comprehensive federal regulatory structure similar to GLBA for other entities, such as retailers, that handle sensitive personal and financial data. In a recent survey, NAFCU members said they spent $136,000 on data security measures in 2014, and that the estimated costs associated with merchant data breaches in 2014 were $226,000, on average, per credit union. Berger will also emphasize the devastating impact breaches can have on consumers and small businesses.In addition, Berger will discuss the full range of concerns that could be addressed by federal legislation, including NAFCU’s key data security principles for inclusion in any comprehensive cyber and data security measures. continue reading » 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Director General of NCAC, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, said the campaign was launched to reawaken the consciousness of Nigerians to believe in the national team.Runsewe said the World Cup is a veritable opportunity to showcase and aggressively market Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage and re-brand its national identity as a people.The event featured the launching of the cultural materials to be used in supporting the Eagles as well as the theme music for Russia 2018.Runsewe said the campaign will be driven through phone-in television question and answer programmes that will test the public awareness on football.Prizes ranging from lapel pins, branded pens, mufflers and other promotional materials, will be awarded to those who get the answers correctly.He said the NCAC is striving to create mass awareness among Nigerians both at home and in Diaspora on the importance of Russia 2018 to Nigeria.He stressed that as part of the strategy towards boosting the Eagles and show casing Nigeria’s rich culture at the World Cup, NCAC will establish a Nigeria Cultural Village in Russia.The centre will be the operational base of the members of Nigeria Football Supporters Club and other Nigerians and it will exhibit the best of Nigeria music, fashion, dance , fashion, gourmet, among others.“The overall goal is to create mass awareness among Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora on the importance of the World Cup to Nigeria and the need for us to support the Super Eagles as a matter of patriotic obligation.“Nobody will celebrate us for us; we have to do it ourselves. We must re- awaken the spirit of promoting and projecting our arts and cultural items in such a way that even domestic football will benefit. I have strong faith that we will raise even more than three million Nigerians, who are ready to project our culture and wear the green-white-green anytime Nigeria is playing. We will also distribute miniature Nigerian flags to all these supporters, ” Runsewe said.Super Eagles legend, Olusegun Odegbami (MON), who chaired yesterday’s launch, lauded Runsewe for incorporating culture and arts into football.Odegbami said that just like education, religion, politics and the economy, culture is one of the most potent instruments to dominate the world.“We need to start to have a full appreciation of who we are, and this concept has come at the right time with the FIFA World Cup – the biggest football showpiece in the universe – just by the corner.“We need to take Nigeria’s arts and culture to the world the same way we are the second highest exporter of football talents to Europe after Brazil,” Odegbami, a member of the national team that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1980 said.He proposed that in every hotel that the Super Eagles will stay during the FIFA World Cup in Russia, a stand should be allocated to conspicuously display Nigeria’s arts and cultural materials.The launch was graced by the President-General of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Dr. Rafiu Ladipo, who was the occasion’s special guest of honour; Director of Communications, NFF, Ademola Olajire; and President of Federation of Tourism Associations of Nigeria, Alhaji Rabo Kareem.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

EPL: Gus Poyet sacked by Sunderland

first_imgGus Poyet has been sacked as Sunderland manager – following the club’s 4-0 defeat to Aston Villa at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.The Uruguayan took training this morning, but was summoned to a meeting with the club’s hierarchy following the conclusion of the workout, where he learned his fate.Black Cats chairman Ellis Short decided a change was needed during the thrashing by Villa, after holding talks with chief executive Margaret Byrne and sporting director Lee Congerton.Around half of the 45,000+ crowd vacated the ground before half time, with some remonstrating with Poyet near the dugouts before leaving.He said he would not resign, but has had the decision made for him with the club sitting just a point above the relegation places.The former Chelsea midfielder took over from Paolo Di Canio 17 months ago, and the Italian has sympathy for his successor – instead pointing the finger at Short. Di Canio said: “The team is in disarray – and it is not the fault of the fans, who are fantastic. There are always 45,000 for every game.”I do not speak of those on the bench (Poyet) because the problems are born from above. From Ellis Short.”The indecency is now before the eyes of everyone – and the fans are not happy. But the choices are from above.”last_img read more
