8 lessons credit unions should learn from 2014 data breaches

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Matt WilhelmI am the youngest in my family.  Eternally my mother’s baby.  Whenever I messed up in school or around the house, my mother would kindly say to me “Well, honey, you learn from your mistakes.”  Of course this infuriated my two older brothers, who would not always get the same gentle treatment when they forgot to turn in homework, or broke curfew.  My guess is most of you can either see my side of this story, or completely empathize with my brothers, depending on where you fall in your sibling lineup.I read an article yesterday from our friends at FLEX entitled “8 Lessons Credit Unions Should Learn from 2014 Data Breaches” and it got me to thinking about my mother’s wise words. We hear about data breaches constantly, whether it be from big box retailers or uber-sized financial institutions.  What is not always being broadcasted on national media are the countless smaller breaches and attacks: The times a credit union’s computers got a malicious malware that encrypted all their data, or when an employee got a PC stolen that had member sensitive information on it.Investigations of the major data breaches of 2014  have involved about 927 million consumer records. It is time we look at these breaches, and learn from our mistakes.Here are the 8 Lessons that Credit Unions should learn from the recent breaches:Hackers have become better organized:  According to a recent Rand report, 80% of hackers were freelancers, and 20% were part of larger organizations, 10 years ago; today that ratio is reversed.  Many of these organizations look like typical businesses with a normal corporate infrastructure.  Sometimes the hackers work together at the same location, and other times they are just emailing back and forth across great distances, but all are working toward a common goal. Often they are tied to traditional criminal organizations. continue reading »last_img read more

7 high school teams declared ‘joint state champions’

first_imgBINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Seven Broome County high school sports teams were declared joint state champions today, after their seasons were cut short in March in the midst of competing in state tournaments. Broome County Executive Jason Garnar said he wanted to recognize each team’s hard work. Seton Catholic’s Marcus Dyes reiterated that, saying ” it was very nice to have the community come together and have an event like this. It was very needed and very uplifting for all of our spirits.” All seven teams were competing in the New York state tournaments when the pandemic put an end to the winter sports season. The Johnson City, Seton Catholic and Binghamton high school boys basketball teams were honored in the first ceremony. The Maine-Endwell girls basketball team, girls and boys bowling teams and Union-Endicott girls bowling teams were honored in the following ceremony. Union-Endicott bowler Ashley Cicciarelli said “I really appreciate them doing this they have honestly no idea how much it means to all of us.” She added, “bowling has been my life constantly for the last 18 years so it was a really nice way to end the chapter.” “For these guys it’s tough, they had their last game they won, and then it was just like taken away from them,” said Garnar. “So to be able to be recognized as the state champion like they were, obviously a lot of them are excited about it but it also gives them some closure to the season, which they didn’t get any.”last_img read more
