8:30 – 10:30 a.m. Welcome, Course Introduction, and Security Orientation

Security:An orientation segment that provides participants with the foundation necessary to develop, maintain and manage an institution-wide, baseline Security Program for the credit union. Section 748, NCUA Rules and Regulations, NCUA 02-cu-12 and the standards of the industry determine the responsibilities of the security officer, management, and the board of directors. In this session, we’ll review the requirements of a written security program, the financial institution, and the security officer in protecting the staff and public. Participation in this segment also promotes a better understanding of the remainder of the segments.

Presentation Highlights:

  • What Is “Security”?
  • What Are The Recognized Security Basics?
  • What Are The Employees’ Responsibilities?
  • What Are The Potential Costs To The Credit Union?
  • What Will Affect The Credit Union’s Security & Loss Prevention Efforts?
  • What Security Regulations Affect The Credit Union?
10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The Security Function

As your credit union’s security manager, your primary duty is to develop and administer a written Security Program for your institution. And as a member of the board of directors, it is imperative that you stay up-to-date on the latest credit union security manager’s challenges and budgetary needs. Security isn’t just about alarms, robbery procedures and filing suspicious activity reports any longer. “Security” has become the term that defines the evolutionary process that provides a safe and secure environment for employees to work – and for members to do business. “Security” is also a control function that’s often described as the act of providing protection and defense against real or anticipated threats and has evolved rapidly from a minimal function into the security department. Used appropriately, the security function can become a pivotal and powerful force in averting losses and recovering missing funds and property. Used inappropriately, however, and it can ruin the credit union, its employees and its members.Today’s sessions provide a logical and strategic model that’s designed to help the credit union’s board of directors, supervisory committee, senior managers and security personnel understand the true scope of security related regulations and industry-standard security practices.

Presentation Highlights

  • What Are Industry-Standard Security Practices?
  • How Should The Relationship Between The Security Function And The Board
    Of Directors Work?
  • How Should The Security Department Fulfill Regulatory Requirements?
  • When Did The Security Department Become A Business Unit?
  • What Is A Security Environment?
  • Who Manages The Security Department?
  • What Other Responsibilities Should Be Given To The Security Department?
  • Why Do CUs Need To Determine The Security Manager’s Duties?
  • What Common Security Practices Should Be Applied?
  • What Are The Security Manager’s Most Common Problems?

Social engineering is the method used by penetration companies and criminals to compromise the financial institution. This session will discuss the modus operandi used to attack members, the credit union or the call center, and how criminals trick people into providing sensitive information. The future attacker we must all be aware of is the malicious insider who will be one of our biggest threats in the future. Discover what future threats your credit union may face.

  • Learn The Latest Attacks Employed Against Credit Unions
  • Discover The Best Practices To Protect Your Credit Union

9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Workplace Violence, Active Shooter & Robbery Prevention and Response

Do your employees know how to respond to an active shooter event? What areas of workplace violence is your institution most vulnerable to? This session will examine workplace violence – its definition and the different types – and how to respond to them should they occur. Recent case studies will also be examined in an effort to extract “pre-incident indicators” and red flags that were present before the incident. Are there steps your credit union can take to make you less of a target for these situations? How should you handle angry members or coworkers? Are you at risk for a domestic violence incident? Learn what you need to know to protect your employees and credit union.

Robbery is one of the most feared crimes . . . period. Every financial institution – banks, credit unions and thrifts – must provide both initial and continuing robbery response training for ALL employees. It’s not an option – it’s required by all state and federal regulatory agencies. The CU’s Security Manager is responsible for developing and managing the credit union’s Security Program and the Security Program must contain policies and procedures that address robberies. The number of robberies increases and decreases in every region of the country – it’s a business cycle. However, the need for a standardized, comprehensive robbery training program must remain constant.

The primary purpose for learning about the specialized crime of robbery is that learning simple, effective robbery response techniques may save lives. This training process – coupled with the implementation of appropriate policies and procedures – allows and encourages managers and executives to make intelligent and informed decisions about supervising employees’ actions during a robbery in progress.

  • Determining Vulnerabilities
  • Workplace Violence Case Studies
  • Developing A Robbery Prevention Checklist

8:30 – 10:30 a.m. Using CPTED (Crime Prevention through Environmental Design) to Conduct Your Annual Security Review

Every credit union should conduct a comprehensive security review at least annually and more frequently if the institution’s environment changes rapidly. Some of the environmental conditions include the introduction of a new product or service, a change in security regulations or laws and the acquisition of a previously owned facility, or an increase in crime events in the region.The purpose of the security review is to identify conditions that may result in a loss or a legal action tomorrow . . . or thirty years from now. The review simply targets a credit union’s “loss potential” using a standardized, practical and cost-effective methodology for analyzing the condition and contributions of the security function. It is also used for identifying the credit union-wide “windows of opportunity” for loss from all sources. CPTED principals are extremely useful when applied to financial institutions. These principals will be defined and discussed, and attendees will learn how to apply them to make their institution more inviting to members, and less attractive to criminals.

Presentation Highlights:

  • Examples Of CPTED Principals As Applied To Financial Institutions
  • How To Conduct Your Physical Security Assessment
  • How To Use Landscaping To Your Advantage

Presentation Objectives:

This presentation is designed to help you:

Identify and describe the credit union’s primary sources of loss exposure and the methods that the Security Manager may use to effectively reduce that exposure

Design or recommend appropriate changes to the credit union’s policies and procedures to address the issues discovered

Conduct a thorough and comprehensive physical security review of your institution

 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Case Studies/Group Scenarios
