Haden named Greencore COO following US disposal

first_imgGreencore has named Peter Haden as chief operating officer following the disposal of its US operation.The company, which today (21 May) announced its half-year results, is appointing him to the executive board with immediate effect. Haden, who joined Greencore in 2015 as chief development officer, will be responsible for running the day-to day-business in his new role.The move comes less than a year after Haden was named chief executive officer of Greencore’s UK division because group CEO Patrick Coveney was to split his time between the UK and the US. But just three months later, Greencore announced it was selling the US operation and would focus on the UK market.Greencore said Haden’s move to the COO and board roles reflected the group’s single, integrated leadership structure and his “sustained contribution to the operational and strategic agenda of the group”.”Peter has made an outstanding contribution to Greencore in a number of senior roles since joining us in 2015, and his promotion to the Board is well deserved,” said Greencore chairman Gary Kennedy.“His strategic mind-set and operational expertise will be invaluable as Greencore looks to drive performance and pursue the range of compelling growth opportunities that we see in the UK convenience food market.”Before joining Greencore, Haden was a brand manager with Procter & Gamble before becoming a partner at McKinsey & Co.last_img read more

Credit union cybersecurity: What you need to know about TLS changes

first_img 36SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Cybersecurity is in the forefront of all business owners’ minds. As we become more interconnected, we open ourselves to more potential breaches. This concern is especially prominent in the financial sector. When you’re talking about member’s hard earned dollars, there’s no room for error. There is an imminent deadline approaching that credit unions need to be aware of as it relates to credit union cybersecurity: An authentication protocol called TLS.TLS 1.0 was established in 1990, as a way to secure communications between machines, such as communication and transactions between a member’s browser and their credit union desktop and mobile banking, as well as between credit union servers and their credit union technology vendors. The protocol has been increasingly vulnerable to hackers and cyber-attacks and is particularly a threat to mobile and internet banking breaches, as well as file transfers between credit union machines and their core vendor. Due to its age, there are no fixes or patches that are able to repair TLS 1.0, leading the PCI Security Council to withdraw support of the archaic protocol effective June 30, 2018, opting instead for merchants and banks to upgrade to the more current versions TLS 1.1 and 1.2.This TLS mandate is impacting credit unions directly. The credit bureaus, and other major players, are requiring updated TLS security, and many small to mid-size credit unions use servers that don’t support TLS. Upgrading a server is expensive, but the risks associated with being out of scope on security can be detrimental. Now more than ever it is imperative to ensure your core and technology vendors stay ahead of the curve and are supplying you with the information you need to plan and budget for necessary changes. continue reading »last_img read more
