Camden, Maine, August 25, 2014 – Gregory A. Dufour, president and chief executive officer of Camden National Bank, is pleased to announce the promotion of David Ackley to senior vice president, senior information & corporate security officer. Ackley, who is based in Rockport, will continue to report to Joanne Campbell, Executive Vice President, Risk Management for Camden National Bank.
“In today’s high-tech banking environment the need for a dynamic and robust information security program is imperative. Technologies such as online banking, remote deposit capture, and mobile banking are wonderfully convenient tools for our customers and we must ensure that they are safe and secure every time they use them,” said Ackley.
Ackley will lead the physical and information security department and will be responsible for the overall network security and monitoring of the bank, ensure compliance with government regulations, and investigating and reporting fraudulent activity.
“The security team is constantly educating themselves to stay in front of the changing security landscape. There are always new challenges, technologies, and threats that criminals use in an attempt to steal information,” said Joanne Campbell, executive vice president, risk management. Campbell continued, “David’s cool head and wealth of information makes him an asset to the bank and helps keep us one step ahead of the threats that arise from time to time.”
Ackley graduated High school at Washington Academy in East Machias, ME and then went on to the Air Force where he was awarded a Purple Heart.
