Time: 10:00 – 11:00 am ET

Host: William J. Heaven, CPA/CITP, CISA, CSCP, Senior Director and Joel Van Horn, CPA/CITP, CISA, Senior Manager

On July 27, our webinar will feature a review of the Employee Benefits Security Administration’s (EBSA) Cybersecurity Guidelines. The U.S. Department of Labor released the guidance to protect the retirement benefits of America’s workers, who combined count more than $9.3 trillion in retirement assets. The guidance is directed at plan sponsors, plan fiduciaries, record keepers and plan participants.

The EBSA cybersecurity guidance is provided in three forms: Tips for hiring a service provider, Cybersecurity best practices, and Online security tips.

We will cover:

  • The cybersecurity guidance forms recommended by EBSA
  • EBSA estimates of covered plan participants and assets
  • How to identify service providers with stringent cybersecurity practices
  • Best practices designed to assist plan fiduciaries and record keepers with managing cybersecurity risk
  • Tips to help retirement participants and beneficiaries reduce the risk of online fraud

Join us on July 27, 2022, for a discussion of how the suggested guidance can mitigate risk for the retirement industry and plan participants as well as improve your business’s cybersecurity posture.
