To fight fraud, credit unions can look to core vendors

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Roy UrricoPreventing fraud and taking charge of risk management is mission critical for credit unions, but luckily, they don’t have to go it alone.Currently, federal regulators are attempting to clamp down on the fraud prevention holes in financial institution infrastructures. On March 30, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) released statements about ways financial institutions can identify and mitigate cyber-attacks that compromise user credentials or use destructive software. In addition, the FFIEC provided information on what institutions can do to prepare for and respond to these threats.In December, the FFIEC released updated guidance on Bank Secrecy Act compliance and money-laundering risks. Then, on Feb. 6, the council added a 16-page appendix to its Business Continuity Planning Booklet, “Strengthening the Resilience of Outsourced Technology Services,” which mentions key cybersecurity risks such as distributed denial-of-service attacks, and notes the necessity for greater due diligence of third parties and infrastructural interdependencies. continue reading »last_img read more

Cricket News BCCI announces cash reward for Virat Kohli brigade after historic series win against Aussies

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Committee of Administrators (CoA) of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday has announced cash awards for the Indian squad for the historic win in Test series against Australia. The win is historic as Team India became the first Asian team to defeat Aussies on their home soil in a Test series. BCCI has announced Rs 7.5 lakh per match for reserve players, Rs 25 lakhs for each coach. For Team India Support Staff (non-coaching), bonuses will be equivalent to the pro-rata salary/professional fee. For all Test team members, bonuses will be equivalent to actual match-fee payable which is Rs 15 lakhs per match for playing a match.After seven decades of pain, Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team etched their name in the history books as they became the first Indian team to win a series Down Under. With victories in Adelaide, Melbourne and a draw in Sydney, India won the four-Test series 2-1 to officially clinch the Border-Gavaskar Trophy outright.Also Read | Rishabh Pant is one for future, says Sourav GangulyThe series result comes as a massive boost to the Indian team and it serves as a catalyst to end their overseas woes after losing 1-2 to South Africa and 1-4 to England. In both the series, India had missed out on capitalizing on key opportunities but in Australia, all their plans came to the fore. Kohli’s Indian cricket team achieved what previous Indian teams could not. All the pain suffered by legends like Vijay hazare, Vijay Merchant, Ajit Wadekar, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman will now be erased as Kohli’s side create a new chapter.After the historic win, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said, “By far, this is my biggest achievement. It’s at the top of the pile. When we won the 2011 World Cup, I was the youngest member of the side. Saw everyone emotional there, but I didn’t feel it. Here, after coming three times, this win means something else. The series win will give us a different identity, and what we’ve been able to achieve… something to be proud of’’. Virat Kohli-led Team India is all geared up for the three-matches ODI series against the Aussies, commencing from January 12. last_img read more

Three Inconnu swimmers qualify for Western Canadian Open in Edmonton

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. — While four of their younger fellow teammates were at AA Provincials in Chilliwack,  seven senior members of the Inconnu Swim Club travelled to Edmonton last weekend to participate in the OSC Mystery Meet.The meet was put together with very short notice, and was hosted to enable athletes to try and attain qualifying times for the Speedo Western Canadian Open meet in April. With new regulations put in place this year by Swimming Canada, swimmers can only qualify for the meet with long course qualifying times, meaning that they must compete in a 50 metre pool. Since nearly all swimming pools in the Peace Region are 25 metres in length, the meet was the only opportunity for Inconnu’s swimmers to be able to qualify for the Western Canadian Open.Of the seven swimmers that made the trip, three were able to make the qualifying standards. Brittany Welsh, Eric Louie and Tate Haugan all qualified, while Haugan also qualified for the Junior Canadian Championships in July in his last swim of the meet.- Advertisement -Head coach Steve Carson said that the meet was the first chance for the Inconnu to swim in a 50 metre pool this year. Carson explained that no matter how many years the athletes have been swimming, it can be difficult for the body to adjust to a course that has doubled in length. So far this year, Inconnu’s swimmers have swam more than 575 kilometres in training, all of it in the 25 metre lap pool at the North Peace Leisure Pool. Before they competed in the long course pool they were able to get in three and a half kilometres to try and get used to the new distance.Carson said that with the tournament being put on with such short notice, and with Alberta Provincials this coming weekend, there were no more than 100 swimmers competing at the meet. This in turn meant that the swimmers would complete one events and then get right back up onto the blocks for the next with very little rest.In an attempt to motivate the team coach Carson put his beard on the line, offering the next swimmer to make a qualifying time to shave his beard however they liked, which Carson would sport for a week. In his last swim of the meet Tate Haugan came through, and Carson will be spending the next few days with a Harvey Dent-style beard.Advertisement Carson added that he was extremely proud of how all the team’s athletes rose to the challenges at the meet with the amount of pressure that was on them.The Inconnu Swim Club will be travelling to Victoria next Wednesday to compete at the Swim BC AAA Provincials, starting Thursday March 2nd.last_img read more
