The growing dependence on technology for retirement plan operations has only heightened the related risks for plan fiduciaries. This month's Qualified Plan Advocate Newsletter addresses a set of recent Department of Labor (DOL) guidance that provides tips and best practices for managing cybersecurity risks. 

Please join us for the May "Fiduciary 15" webinar, in which QPA's National Retirement Practice Leader will provide a deeper dive on the monthly newsletter and provide additional education for plan fiduciaries.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • Emphatic DOL statements regarding fiduciary responsibilities;
