T examinations are not getting any easier on credit unions, especially with the rising demands from examiners to focus on cybersecurity. With that in mind, below are 6 steps your credit union can take to ensure that you are prepared and IT Compliant:1. DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT, DOCUMENTThe biggest mistake credit unions make is the easiest. Not documenting IT policies and procedures, no matter what those policies and procedures are, shows to your examiner a lack of concern or attention. It is also a violation of compliance. According to the FFIEC Handbook, “It is the responsibility of an institution’s board and senior management to ensure that the institution identifies, assesses, prioritizes, manages, and controls IT risks as part of the business continuity planning process. The board and senior management should establish policies that define how the institution will manage and control the risks that were identified.”2. Show documentation that you have tested your backup and recovery plan… and have done so recently.Run tests of your data backup randomly through out the year to make sure your systems will survive, and be prepared with reports from the tests. Again, documentation, and not just a firm head nod to confirm your backup plan works, is important. The FFIEC Handbook states: “To maintain the effectiveness of the BCP (Business Continuity Plan), the board and senior management should ensure that enterprise-wide BCP tests are conducted at least annually, or more frequently depending on changes in the operating environment. Formal procedures should be established for reporting the implementation of the testing program and test results to the board and senior management.” continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
LifestyleRelationships 5 myths about men, singleness and marriage by: – March 26, 2015 Share Myth #1: Men are not pursuing women (or, men don’t want to be married)Truth: According to the Barna Research Group, 84 percent of Christians will get married at some point. Therefore, if you believe matrimony is sparked by the initial pursuit of a man, then 84 percent of men will pursue a woman in their life. This exposes the myth that men don’t pursue. So cheer up women! The odds are in your favor – you will most likely be married.Furthermore, in my social circles, the statistic is much higher. I’d postulate that 99 percent of my male cronies place marriage as an important goal. (My one friend who is adamant about maintaining his singleness can be the token, “Bachelor to the Rapture.”)Myth #2: Men are too pickyTruth: Actually, this stereotype has at least the potential to be true. Statistically, there are just more women in church than men. According to a Gallup poll, the average church in America is made of up 47 percent women and only 39 percent men.Sorry ladies, the fact is, there’s just not enough of us go around on Sundays! But seriously, this is not a good deal for you. It’s like attempting to win at five-card poker with only four cards.Even so, a theoretical increase in opportunity for us men doesn’t equate to us increasing our criteria for potential wives. What is true is that both women and men often write absurd non-negotiable lists for their future spouses. Lastly, it only takes one person to marry, regardless of which gender is dominant in church.Myth #3 It’s not painful for men to be singleTruth: Men also feel the sting of singleness. Biologically, we have the same number of pain receptors as women. And wasn’t it Adam who was originally alone in the Garden? Twice, the Bible states that God needed to create Eve because “no suitable helper was found.” Men need women as much as women need men.My solo-life has been an emotional roller-coaster. It’s had its advantages, like world travel. But if I take one more photo next to my buddy (and not my wife) at some arbitrary ancient ruin, I’ll consider joining a monastery in reprise.Let’s stop this madness. Singleness hurts us both because many of our hopes and dreams are wrapped in the blanket of marriage.At the same time, many women endure a unique pain that is tied to their time-sensitive dream of bearing children. Some men long to become dads as well, but their bodies don’t “tick” in the same manner. Guys need to understand and empathize with this clock.Myth #4: Singleness indicates men are immatureIf a certain woman desires to be married more than a certain man, it doesn’t make her more mature. It _only_reveals she wants to be married more! Where does Scripture claim that marriage is the litmus test for spiritual maturity anyway? It’s easy to forget that the apostle Paul actually warns about the dangers of marriage in 1 Corinthians 7.Certainly, some men should relinquish their adolescent thinking and limit playing video games. In a society of fatherless families and deadbeat dads, this is no surprise. These BAAM’s (Boys Acting As Men) need to be appropriately mentored. At the same time, I’ve met plenty of women who share similar juvenile thinking.Myth #5: The genders need to battleTruth: We are in this together. God created us male and female to complement each other and to reflect His Divine nature – not to battle. Let’s withdraw our fighting stance, therefore, and cease sparring. Instead of being enemies, let’s fight in unity the adversary Jesus mentions.We are dependent on each other – to be married, to have a family, and to enjoy intimacy. It will take both voices, singing in harmony, to figure out this relationship-enigma.familyshare.com Tweet 193 Views no discussions Share Share Sharing is caring!
