SYNC 2020: Together Toward Tomorrow
Virtual Edition - October 20, 2020
After much contemplation, we made a decision to cancel our “physical” conference at the Peabody in Memphis this fall.

This action was taken in an abundance of caution as we try to manage the possible loss of revenue and consider the inherent risks of our attendees in the midst of this ongoing pandemic.
We are not going to let this “physical” challenge delete our conference! We plan to host our first ever “virtual conference" and are busy putting together a plan to network, share, and learn with SYNC 2020 – Together Towards Tomorrow.

We will have more information and registration as soon as we map out our new direction! 
Cloudflare Coming Soon
Cloudflare is best described as insurance for your digital networks. This product is robust security software which will be installed on each of our client's digital systems. The protection is essentially a filter for your internet connections and can detect serious threats aiming to infiltrate your secure connections.

Now, more than ever, the internet is mission-critical to share data, to solve challenges, and to stay connected. But as the internet increases in importance, you're confronting higher network demand, a rapid acceleration in remote work, and an intensifying risk of cyber threats.

We selected and installed Cloudflare for some of our credit union clients whose digital banking sites were under DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack last year. This occurs when multiple systems flood the bandwidth of resources of a targeted system. The DDoS attack will attempt to make an online service or website unavailable by flooding it with unwanted traffic from multiple computers. This can flood a certain site with traffic, so much that its network ceases to work, taking the site offline.

The Share One credit unions which experienced these attacks were unable to operate their internet banking systems. Once Cloudflare was implemented, the attacks were identified and then stopped. These experiences proved that this service is needed in the current marketplace, and we plan to install this service for all clients in 2020.

Cost - There will be a cost associated with this protection. Our focus is to deliver this necessary service and recover the cost of this insurance for each of our client's digital networks.

Cloudflare offers best in class network DDoS protection, is entirely software-defined, is vetted by large corporations like IBM, Shopify, and others boasting a proven track record of protecting web applications, infrastructure, and remote workforce reliability.

Our National Account Executives, Michael Curtis , Eric Conrad , and Laura Stewart will have more information to share with you regarding pricing and will be connecting with you to establish a timeline of implementation.
