15th Annual 2017 Credit Union InfoSecurity Conference

At the beautiful Wyndham San Diego Bayside | San Diego, CA


Connect with peers • Connect with trends • Connect with solutions

The Credit Union InfoSecurity Conference started in 2002 with a small group of a few dozen credit union professionals gathering to discuss the latest security trends. Since then, it has grown to over a hundred security and IT decision makers attending from credit unions across the nation, and a handful of international credit unions as well.

This is a one-of-a-kind conference - a security conference dedicated solely to credit unions. Highly experienced, expert speakers discuss the latest security trends as they specifically apply to credit unions. Over the years, over one thousand credit union professionals have attended the conference to network with peers, learn about new approaches to ever-evolving security issues, discover the latest technologies, interact with top security leaders, and have fun while doing it.
