Last year's Solar Winds breach was unlike anything we've seen before. Actually, the year 2020 was unlike anything we have seen before. So why not have the world's biggest hack that will last far into the future to cap off the year?
Yes, we've all seen the numbers and the impact -- and the still-to-come possible impact -- this breach has caused. So let's turn our attention to credit unions. What did this event mean to them and how can they protect themselves if similar events occur in the near future? And they will.
To address these questions and more, we invited PURE IT Credit Union Services’ Trent Henson, CTO, and Gene Fredriksen, Principal Cybersecurity Consultant, on the show to share their expertise. Both Trent and Gene quickly refreshed our memory on this breach, how it worked (Trent's counterfeit money analogy brought it into perspective quite nicely), and what it means for credit unions moving forward -- as well as how to protect ourselves.
They also talked about how to educate your credit union's Board on this topic to get their buy in on taking appropriate measures to protect the financial institution.
Another fascinating conversation with these gentlemen. Check it out when you get a chance and let us know your thoughts. And watch the entire episode below for all the details.
