Webinar: FFIEC Guidance on Cloud Computing: Considerations for Credit Unions

Start: 3:00 pm
End: 4:30 pm
Event Days: 05/21/2013 - 05/21/2013

From a technology and cost standpoint, cloud computing can be a very attractive option for credit unions. Unfortunately, assessing the risks and security of a cloud-based solution can be difficult and time consuming. However, this should not deter exploring these options, because the cloud-provider systems could be preferable to an in-house solution. This session will explore the security concerns credit unions need to consider when evaluating cloud solutions and how to assess them.

About This Session:    

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Due diligence: ensuring providers meet cost, quality, compliance and regulatory requirements
  • Vendor management: creating controls to mitigate risks
  • Audit: assessing whether a third-party servicer's internal controls are sufficient
  • Information security: updating policies to fit the cloud-computing model
  • Legal, regulatory and reputational considerations: identifying and mitigating risks
  • Business continuity planning: determining whether a third-party servicer has resources to ensure continuity of operations

Who Should Participate:

Credit union decision-makers using or considering a cloud-computing model with service outsourced
