I am not normally a work from home kind of person. Working from home for me was always due to a physical constraint of needing to be at home for something – accepting a parcel that had to be signed for, or having a workman round to fix the oven, that kind of thing. Other than that, I much preferred to be in the office, since I love being part of a team and I like having the team in the office with me.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced both credit unions and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) to adjust how they do business. The NCUA published a statement (updated on May 15, 2020) noting that it recognizes that COVID-19 will affect credit unions and their members to varying degrees, yet remains committed to ensuring compliance and reporting mandates for credit unions.
Last month, we announced that we expanded in the European market with the opening of our Belfast office and security operations Center (SOC). While we already have over 25 people on board, we are actively looking to hire and expand our team.
We recently published a post that defines what a Security Operations Center (SOC). In this post, we’ll break down the basics of SOC-as-a-Service, including what it is and how it helps, and tell you a little about how Cygilant’s SOC-as-a-Service works.
It’s been an exciting few weeks over here at Cygilant with our recent expansion into the European Market and now we are excited to announce that we have added a new member to our senior leadership team – Kevin Gannon! Kevin joins Cygilant from PwC, where he served as a Solutions Architect and was a founding member of the PwC Blockchain practice. He’s based in our new Belfast office (remotely for now of course). View the formal announcement on Kevin’s appointment.
The coronavirus has presented new challenges and ways of working for all of us. If you’re responsible for managing IT and/or security for a credit union, your immediate responsibilities have been making sure your team can continue to work safely, while ensuring customers have secure access to their accounts.
