The COVID-19 pandemic has led to millions of employees working from home and a huge increase in online scams, malware distribution and phishing attacks against individuals and companies. Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union will host a virtual event, “Identifying, Resolving and Communicating Your Credit Union’s Cybersecurity Risks During the COVID-19 Pandemic” on Aug. 13 at 2 p.m. ET.
In late March, a leading cybersecurity firm reported that they had observed a 600% increase in spear-phishing attacks alone. These attacks continue to compromise confidential data in increasingly advanced ways, making it difficult to control and combat the risks to your credit union. From the front line to the board room, taking proactive steps to protect both your credit union and members is essential.
