NCUA and IT security for credit unions

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) oversees US federally-insured credit unions. They require credit unions to audit their cybersecurity practices to identify risks and provide evidence of security measures that protect the privacy of their members’ data. These measures include access controls, endpoint protection, and encryption of data while in transit and in storage.

To maintain public confidence, credit unions and their contractors must prevent cyber attacks and protect the security of their members’ information. Following NCUA standards will ensure your credit union-related business fulfills its obligations.

Components of NCUA’s IT Security Standards

Adopt NCUA’s IT security standards
with our simple 3-step process:

Step 1

Gap Assessment

Before your business attempts to implement the NCUA standards, you should identify any issues that could lead you to fail. This important step is called a Gap Assessment, and is designed to determine the “gaps” or holes in your security posture and to show you how to fill them.
