The Importance of Consistent Federal Privacy Compliance Standards for Financial Institutions – Interview With Rodney Hood | ADCG Podcast: Ep. 28

Association for Data and Cyber Governance
34 minute listen | May.05.2021

National Credit Union Administration Board Member Rodney Hood made cybersecurity and data protection at credit unions a priority when he became the organization’s chairman in 2019, and has consistently addressed the challenges that credit unions face in coping with privacy law requirements and cyber threats. He strongly advocates the importance of clear and consistent federal privacy compliance standards for all financial institutions in the face of the emerging patchwork of state privacy enactments.

Hood was the first African American to head a federal financial regulatory agency. He served as vice chair of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, and prior to assuming the leadership of NCUA, he was the corporate responsibility manager at JPMorgan Chase.
