Cyber Breach Intensification Provides Backdrop to DefenseStorm Session

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (April 30, 2019) – Cyber breaches are up 50% in 2019, while research predicts a 3-million-person global shortage in qualified cybersecurity talent by the end of the year. In light of this, DefenseStorm Chief Revenue Officer Steve Soukup is leading a breakout session at the upcoming NAFCU CEO and Senior Executives Conference regarding the cyber threat challenge to credit unions and the recent intensification of data breaches.

The conference, taking place in Key West, Fla. from May 1 through May 3, will provide the setting for Soukup to discuss current cybersecurity trends and solutions including the shortage of cybersecurity staff, hacking and cybersecurity plans of action during his presentation at 10:00am ET on Thursday, May 2.

An executive with deep banking industry expertise, Steve has worked for a number of FinTech companies throughout his 20+ year career, including Intuit, KPN, Q2 and S1 Corporation. In addition, he has direct banking experience through management positions at Key Bank, Bank Boston and State Street Bank.

“Steve is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to protecting credit unions and their members from cyberattacks,” said Harold Brewer, DefenseStorm CEO. “Attendees will walk away from this presentation with an easy-to-follow action plan that can be immediately implemented to ensure your cybersecurity methods are both effective and sustainable.”
