CEO and Senior Executives Conference regarding the cyber threat
challenge to credit unions and the recent intensification of data

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,
