Breakout Sessions

Social Media Privacy & Security

It is no secret that organized crime consider social media channels as treasure troves, rich with the sensitive personal data of unwitting users and connected acquaintances.  Lack of end user security and privacy savvy continues to enable the theft of personal data that is then sold on illegal markets, leveraged to enhance social engineering attacks, and exploited to incur identity fraud.  In this session we review recommended social media settings to help mitigate the ongoing threat of identity theft.

Topics will include:

  • Social media risk
  • Best practices
  • Settings of interest: Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram
  • Software solutions


Barry Bundus has over 25 years of fraud management experience and in his role with National Consulting Limited provides credit unions with guidance and training to reduce reputation risk and fraud loss.  Barry is a member of the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators (IAFCI), National Risk Management Committee (NRMC), and Credit Union Office of Crime Prevention and Investigation (CUOCPI).
