When NCUA issued its list of supervisory priorities for 2017, it wasn't a surprise that cybersecurity was on the list as it's been a key priority for the last few years. No doubt you're familiar with the FFIEC's tool that is used as self-assessment to gauge the level of cybersecurity risk and the processes and procedures your credit union has in place to mitigate those risks. Does your incident response plan cover all the bases (IT, Legal, Marketing and Communications areas) so that your credit union can weather the ugliness of a breach when it happens?
If you're feeling that perhaps maybe you should bone-up on cybersecurity and all that cybersecurity entails, then CUNA has two upcoming events that can help you navigate the complicated world of cybersecurity – and either option will bring you up to speed on the what you need to do to align your credit union with NCUA's view of complying in terms of cyber preparedness.
