About the Risk Management Council

The Risk Management Council provides an opportunity for professionals in various risk-related roles to discuss trends, share best practices, and discover solutions to shared challenges. This council focuses on physical, information, and cyber security, as well as business continuity and disaster recovery. By connecting peers in these areas, this council will foster communication and support that is beneficial for the credit union movement in terms of identifying and reducing the many areas of risk that credit unions face daily.

This Risk Management Council meeting will cover a broad range of topics assembled to help attendees think about risk in a holistic, enterprise-wide manner. In the morning, we will discuss operational and security risks, followed by a deep dive on compliance risk with our legal partner Hal Scoggins, Attorney at Farleigh Wada Witt. In the afternoon, we will focus on cybersecurity and cyber threats, with a presentation from Tim Ryan, Managing Director at Sheltered Harbor. Sheltered Harbor is a not-for-profit subsidiary of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center, dedicated to protecting consumers, financial institutions, and public confidence in the financial system in the event of a cyberattack. The segment will help Northwest credit unions better understand the overall risk behind cyberattacks as well as how to engage with the Sheltered Harbor network.
