The Bureaus, Inc. is pleased to announce the selection of Vice President Marian Sangalang to speak at the Annual Consumer Financial Services Conference at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. The two day conference, from May 31st– June 1st, was designed to address issues most common to financial services companies. Some of the Conference topics addressed were: mortgage lending and services issues, fair lending, access to credit, debt collection and ethics, TCPA, MLA/SCRA, and cybersecurity. Along with co-presenter Kim Phan, Counsel at Wilmerhale, Mrs. Sangalang offered attendees the opportunity to learn about the significance and value of understanding cybersecurity and addressing the associated threats and opportunities.
As the modern definition of security has extended far beyond the walls of our offices and buildings, companies are ever pressed to take pro-active measures to thwart cyber-attacks. The reputational and financial damages caused by data breaches, persistent threats, and misuse of information can be catastrophic to an organization. Marian Sangalang and Kim Phan presented on the importance of a comprehensive cybersecurity program.
“Cybersecurity is a critical business investment and comprehensive programs must encompass the entire security process. From robust password procedures to stringent disposal protocols, organizations must establish vigorous internal cybersecurity policies and procedures,” says Marian Sangalang, Vice President of The Bureaus, Inc.
The presentation included some of the key themes related to cybersecurity:
- Identifying laws (EU, Federal, and State) pertinent to businesses
- Summary of Industry Standards
- Establishing an effective risk mitigation program
- Implementing cybersecurity best practices
With legislative changes and privacy breaches, the pressures of mounting client expectations and regulatory demands exacerbate the need for increased attention and response to privacy and security.
