NCUA launches cybersecurity resources page
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (3/6/14)--The National Credit Union Administration has launched a new resource for credit unions--a webpage that provides links to cybersecurity and data security resources.
 
The site includes links to regulations, guidance and best practices, as well as information-sharing forums on cyber threats, among other resources.
 
The launch coincided with NCUA Board Chairman Matz's remarks last week at the Credit Union National Associations' Governmental Affairs Conference here.
 
The data breach at Target is the story of a double standard "that is neither healthy nor fair," she said at the Feb. 24 general session at the GAC. "While financial institutions are required by law to protect sensitive personal information, data protection standards for retailers are too often simply not adequate."  ( News Now Feb. 25)
 
The NCUA also is working on better understanding the evolving cyberthreat environment with other financial regulators, law enforcement and intelligence communities, as part of a new working group.
