Central 1 News 

AmpliFI Nominations Deadline Extended! 
You now have until July 12 to nominate the great work done by Canadian FIs for the first annual Central 1 AmpliFI Awards. With 5 categories from operations and digital transformation to business banking and beyond, let's celebrate the rock stars in all sides of our business. 
The Strong Password Initiative on MemberDirect Business (login required) 
​Passwords are one of the primary mechanisms that protect our systems and resources from unauthorized access. Poor password management and construction increases the risk of unauthorized access to our systems. To drive awareness and vigilance around this, and as part of our ongoing measures to strengthen the security of our digital banking platforms, we will be implementing a requirement for strong passwords on the MemberDirect Business (MDB) platform.
