The company has agreed to pay $700 million for claims tied to the breach, but the topics of data and cybersecurity remain unsettled overall. Institutions, including credit unions, must continue to ensure the safety of their members’ data on an ongoing basis, as threats remain prevalent.NAFCU has long been active with lawmakers on the issues of data and cybersecurity. In 2013, the association’s advocacy efforts approached the massive 2013 Target data breach head-on, calling for a legislative solution to reform the nation’s data security system. And earlier this year, NAFCU’s Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt reiterated the association’s call for a national data security standard for entities that collect and store consumers’ personal and financial information ahead of a hearing to examine ways to improve the credit reporting system.NAFCU is also engaged with the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC), which brings together private and public stakeholders to develop critical infrastructure strategies and initiatives. Last week, NAFCU’s Senior Counsel for Research and Policy, Andrew Morris, attended a joint meeting with the FSSCC and the Financial and Banking Infrastructure Committee. The meeting included discussion of a potential framework for promoting sector-specific operational resilience, insights regarding global cybersecurity threats, and potential approaches for enhancing supply chain transparency.
Hugo Broos HAS NOT resigned his position as coach of Cameroon’s national team, despite reports, especially in Nigerian media that he has thrown in the towel.Sources in Cameroon have referred to the reports as “mere rumours”, and there’s no truth to it. In fact, when asked about the reports, Broos, who is already back in Cameroon preparing for the visit of Nigeria’s Super Eagles “laughed over it”.This is not the first time though that there have been reports of the 65-year-old resignation. After a 2-1 friendly defeat to Guinea in March, Broos openly lambasted the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) over unpaid salaries and poor welfare, claiming “this is the last straw” and that he was “wondering if he could continue” as the Lions coach.Broos stayed on after that, but the unrest and instability in FECAFOOT have not been fully attended to, which led to FIFA appointing a normalisation committee to take charge of the Association.Cameroon sits second in group B despite Friday’s 4-0 loss to Nigeria.They host Nigeria’s Super Eagles in Yaounde on Monday, however, Hugo Broos has already written off the country’s chances of qualifying for the World Cup in Russia.“There is no hope. We have to win three games and Nigeria have to lose three games. That’s not possible.”“The second leg is no longer important. We don’t have a chance to reach the World Cup. Russia 2018 won’t happen for us.”The Belgian is expected to take charge of training for the Indomitable Lions at 5:00 pm today.RelatedAUDIO: Cameroon Coach Admits Losing To A Better Nigerian SideSeptember 2, 2017In “Africa”AUDIO: We Can’t Afford To Lose To Nigeria – Cameroon Coach, Hugo BroosAugust 31, 2017In “Africa”Siasia In The Running For Vacant Cameroon Managerial PostApril 24, 2018In “Africa”
