9:00 a.m. Cryptocurrency, Cybercrime & the Darkweb

Chad Knutson, SBS Cybersecurity, Madison, SD
What do these 3 items have in common? Criminals looking to buy or sell their illegal items have long depended on the black market to conduct their trades. With the evolution of technology, we have brought these markets to the internet. We will explore the different aspects of the internet, including the surface web, deep web, and dark web. Cybercriminals are also leveraging the web to buy and sell their stolen data or cyber products and services. Understanding how the internet is leveraged for crime gives us a better understanding how to protect our institutions. We will also explore the types of cybercrime affecting community banks and how to counter these risks. In this session, we will discuss the following: cryptocurrency and its impacts; cybercrime fraud trends in community banking; different dark parts of the internet; and buying and selling cybercrime

10:35 a.m. 7 Leadership Lessons from Ender’s Game

Hans Eckman, Eckman Guides, Atlanta, GA
For managers, authority is assigned and leadership assumed, but there are big differences between management and leadership.  Leadership must be demonstrated and authority earned through trust and respect.  In “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card, Ender Wiggin faced similar challenges as he moved through the battle school. Initially, Ender was not only in a contributor position, but he was actively inhibited from demonstrating value. Join us to learn the 7 secrets of leadership Ender developed during his time at Battle and Command schools.  See how his leadership lessons can be applied to your professional growth, development, and perspective as a leader in your company and projects. Even if you are not ready to step from the shadows yet, these lessons will improve your work as a key contributor and facilitate your path to future leadership.
