MADISON, Wis. (10/11/11)--The Credit Union National Association has revised its “ID Theft: How to Prevent It and How to Get Over It” statement stuffer. In June, when the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council set new security expectations for online banking activities, it identified essential elements for financial institutions' consumer awareness efforts. The revised brochure/stuffer addresses many of those changes. The brochure:
* Prepares members for challenge questions during online transactions; * Explains that the credit union will not contact them by e-mail or phone for personal information; * Encourages ways to protect accounts, including strong passwords; * Offers resources for more information on ID theft prevention and recovery.
