Webinar: Cybersecurity Guidance for Employee Benefit Plans

This year, the U.S. Department of Labor announced best practice guidance for plan sponsors, plan fiduciaries, recordkeepers and plan participants for maintaining cybersecurity in benefit plans. With the exponential rise of cybersecurity incidents worldwide, it is critical that plans take precautions to mitigate the risk to sensitive plan information and plan assets. Central to these plans is identifying where threats can come from – internal and external – and how to best protect data at its weakest points.

This 60-minute intermediate-level webinar will help plan sponsors, service providers, and participants understand cybersecurity threats, how to create strong cybersecurity practices and policies, and online security tips to reduce the risk of fraud.

 

Please note: the webinar will reflect the most recent guidance reasonably available at time of presentation; in the event the ETS is issued, or other developments arise that have an impact on this topic, adjustments will be made where possible.

Register today while seating is still available.

NOTE: If you would like to view the webinar but are not able to attend, we encourage you to still register as you normally would. All registrants will receive a replay and copy of the presentation afterwards.
