Cyber Security Defense & Threat Intelligence for the Credit Union Industry
Protect your organization from cyber attacks with our cyber defense and threat intelligence system
Cyber Security Controls implementation for Credit Unions
Credit Unions are increasingly getting targeted for cyber attacks and hacking. The lack of advanced security measures or network controls often leaves entry points exposed to criminal attacks. Credit unions are now mandated to focus on protecting sensitive member data from theft. A large number of credit unions have started taking the threats seriously, a step in the right direction.
Understanding Security Control Implementation
Credit unions have a special need for protecting their member information and credit data. Systems breach can have a variety of negative effects. Cyber attacks can lead to system lockdown, delays in processing, identity theft and financial losses to the business.
A credit union can also lose its reputation. Customers work with a business because they trust that it will keep their information secure and private. Most credit unions keep sensitive client data in their accounts including SSN, bank account numbers, transaction history, and employment or salary details. Protecting this vital data is important for building client trust.
Cyber Security Controls for Credit Unions
Credit Unions of today face a dilemma. On the one hand, they must provide online, cloud-based services to clients. They need to make it easier for customers to access their accounts from anywhere. The services must also be available round the clock.
On the other hand, the service must be completely secure that prevents unauthorized personnel from gaining access to the system. Visitor traffic must be continuously monitored and any attempts to breach the database must be responded to quickly.
At Torii, we have designed a Cyber Security Control (CSC) implementation plan aimed specifically at Credit Unions. Our control program will allow credit unions to ensure security compliance with regulations while improving the data management, reporting and accessibility for your entire infrastructure.
Why Credit Unions need CSC implementation
Most Credit Unions do not hire an extensive IT team. The entire system management and security function are usually carried out by a single individual who isn’t necessarily an expert in security controls. Due to limited funding for IT budgets, credit unions have to make do with what they can spare.
This is the main reason why many credit unions lack insight about advanced security measures and precisely why they get targeted so often.
However, the challenge can be overcome with the help of a professional security team. An expert team can implement critical security measures and test them continuously for vulnerabilities. They can also detect if and when an attempt has been made and quickly change the protocol to prevent attacks from succeeding in the future.
Critical Cyber Security Controls (CSC)
The critical CSC controls are a set of best practice actions designed by the Center for Internet Security (CIS). The controls outline the actions that must be taken to understand and prevent cyber attacks from affecting a business procedure. The controls can be divided into three categories; basic foundational and organizational.
By implementing controls in one stage, an organization can progress to an advanced certification stage and improve its cyber security. Torii supports the integration of these controls automatically into NCUA standards and the audit system ACET. By implementing our critical CSC your credit union can move to a more advanced certification stage with ease.
