Jovia CIO Daniel Ford talks candidly about the role of the CIO at today's credit union - and also about whether in fact a banker can fit into a credit union culture.
Show Notes

Can your cybersecurity keep hackers at bay?


Can cybersecurity be used as a marketing tool by a credit union?


Can a banker in fact become a credit union executive?


For answers, listen to this podcast with Daniel Ford, CIO at Jovia, a $3+ billion credit union on Long Island that you probably know as NEFCU.  The rebranding occurred a month ago.


Ford joined NEFCU via First Source Bank in South Bend (IN), where he was  the chief information officer, responsible for infrastructure, cybersecurity, and application development.  We asked him bluntly: can a banker in fact fit into a credit union's philosophy?  You can guess his answer but give it a full listen. He makes points to remember.


Podcasts in this series that explore bankers and credit unions include Jim Blaine, Bucky Sebastian, Gary Oakland, and Marc Schaefer


Ford also talks, at length, about what a CIO needs to do to stay on top of cybersecurity and also how to work with vendors.


As for using cybersecurity as a marketing tool, don't be too quick to say no way. Ford offers a tactic that just might work. Of course you want to hear that.
