Member data security strengthened with CSS, Awareness alliance
MADISON, Wis. (2/24/14)--One of the consequences of the data security breach at retail giant Target is a heightened awareness of the importance of keeping member data safe. A new alliance between CUNA Strategic Services Inc. (CSS) and Awareness Technologies offers credit unions a solution that protects that information on an internal basis.
 
Awareness Technologies' computer- and device-monitoring software provides a compliant method for credit unions to monitor suspicious activity, ensuring that employees don't compromise member data. This can include accessing unapproved social media sites, performing suspicious Internet searches, or trying to outright steal member information. It also protects member information should a company laptop be stolen.
 
"By allowing information technology and human resources professionals to work together to ensure a productive and secure workplace, Awareness Technologies gives credit unions peace of mind and the ability to make informed choices," said Wes Millar, CSS senior vice president.
 
The Westport, Conn.-based company's unified internal threat management solution covers on-site, remote and traveling employees. It allows credit unions and their employees to benefit from working remotely without sacrificing security and regulatory compliance.
 
The alliance was announced Sunday at the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.
