CU*Answers Hires Internal Auditor

The West Michigan-based CUSO known for providing data processing and ancillary services to credit unions has recently announced the addition of a new Internal Auditor to its team.

According to CU*Answers, Patrick Sickels was hired to assist the CUSO in achieving the goal of transparent compliance.   Sickels, CISA, JD, is a former attorney and network engineer who brings a wealth of experience in law and information technology security management.  He boasts extensive practice in building audit programs and will be partnering with CU*A staff to constantly review ways to advance the CUSO’s already strict security and compliance programs.

“An aspect of my role that is both challenging and fun is ensuring our people maintain or exceed their high level of customer service while continuously  improving our overall security,” says Sickels.  “I’ve been very impressed with everyone’s willingness to raise the bar on security and compliance.  As our company grows, the work we do today will pay substantial dividends down the road as regulations become ever more stringent and complex.”
