NATIONAL CREDIT UNION CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
Credit unions represent a major segment of the financial services critical infrastructure with 6,600+ institutions in the US and globally more than 57,000 credit unions in 105 countries on six continents. As credit unions continue to maximize technology and telecommunications to serve their members on a global scale and also continue to face more cyber regulatory scrutiny, regardless of a credit union’s size, these demands raise “cyber resilience, cyber security and mitigating risk” to the very top of the priority list.
CREDIT UNION CYBER RESILIENCE
Credit Union Cyber Resilience is dependent upon access to the real-time availability of proactive “actionable” threat intelligence, analysis, coordinated countermeasure response, best practice adoption, and role-based workforce education. Protecting critical infrastructure requires an unprecedented level of cooperation, collaboration, and coordination supported by an infrastructure connected trusted sector and cross-sector communities.
The mission of the NCU-ISAO is to enable and sustain Credit Union critical infrastructure cyber resilience and preserve the public trust by advancing trusted security coordination and collaboration to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from threats and vulnerabilities.
