Take the Steps to Mitigate Cybersecurity Risks at Your Credit Union

The National Credit Union Association (NCUA) is a federal agency that was created to regulate and supervise federal credit unions. The NCUA requires credit unions to maintain FFIEC compliance by taking the appropriate steps to mitigate cybersecurity risks in accordance with the Electric Code of Federal Regulations e-CFR §748 and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Examination Handbook. Credit unions may choose their desirable framework for individual assessments; however, NCUA examiners follow the FFIEC NIST-based Cybersecurity Assessment approach to ensure credit union compliance.
