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.
