While no one can prevent every traumatic event, your financial institution can make it easier for customers to meet life’s challenges. You can help customers prepare for emergencies by providing them with safe-deposit boxes. No, not physical boxes, like the “olden” days; instead offer a digital […]

2020-01-15T12:47:14-05:00January 14th, 2020|

There are some categories where no company wants a first-place ranking: number of defective product recalls, number of malpractice suits and largest  number of records exposed in a data breach, to name a few. (That last title, most  records stolen in 2019 (106 million), went to Capital One, a The McLean, Va.-based financial services giant .)

More than 137 million records were exposed in the 10 biggest data breaches in 2019, according to information compiled by the Identity Theft Resource Center and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Six of the 10 largest breaches impacted medical or healthcare organizations, with two […]

Imagine This: Digital Transformation is Improving Regulatory Exams and Keeping Examiners Out of Your Credit Union

2017-09-20T14:20:42-04:00September 7th, 2017|

What if credit union examiners could do most – or all – of their “field” work remotely, from their home offices? No, really, think about it. You might even envision John Lennon in the background, singing “Imagine all the examiners … living life at home.” But we don’t need to listen to Lennon or other members of the Fab Four to improve processes like credit union exams. All we need is a little creative thinking – and a little help from digital technology.

Why should credit unions care if examiners can do their work and still make it to the kids’ evening […]

As if our stress-laden society didn’t have enough fears and phobias, now there’s nomophobia – “the fear of being without a mobile phone.” It’s that sinking feeling you get when you can’t find your phone or know you left it at home. The British Post Office coined the term “nomophobia” in 2010, and for some it’s a real anxiety.

That isn’t surprising. Market research firm IDC found that 79% of smartphone users have their phones on or near them every waking hour. There were some 7.7 billion mobile devices worldwide by the end of 2014 – […]
