Welcome to the National Credit Union ISAO
Critical infrastructure represents the assets, systems and networks (physical or virtual), so vital that incapacitation or destruction would have debilitating and catastrophic cascading impacts within and across sectors. As cyber threats and attacks to global critical infrastructure continue to increase in frequency, severity and sophistication, impacts can result in catastrophic incidents, endangering national security, economies, business continuity, and public health and safety.
To advance Credit Union-specific cyber resilience, meeting compliance requirements, issues and challenges, a strategic collaborative partnership established the National Credit Union Information Sharing & Analysis Organization (NCU-ISAO).
