Credit Union Web Training Webinar:
Regulatory Implications of FFIEC Authentication Guidance

Examiners have authored more IT guidance in the past year than in the previous three years combined! Credit unions are adopting new technology to meet evolving member service needs and to leverage automation for increased efficiencies. Remote deposit capture, online banking, mobile banking, and social media are just a few examples of new technologies used to serve members. If your credit union chooses to adopt such technologies, you need to implement controls to ensure the security and stability of these service delivery channels. The FFIEC Authentication Supplement provides a foundation for good security and a successful IT examination. Additional pieces of guidance from the FFIEC and/or NCUA that augment the Supplement include:

  • Corporate Account Takeover (CATO) Regulation
  • ATM Regulation
  • DDoS Regulation
  • Social Media Regulation

Achieving a successful IT examination is becoming a tremendous challenge as regulators scrutinize IT at credit unions around the country. Unfortunately, several data breaches have put cybersecurity back on the examiners’ radar. A sufficient cybersecurity program is a “must have” for protecting important consumer/financial information and navigating a successful IT examination. This webinar will address this topic head on. It will describe the regulation examiners are highlighting and will outline the requirements for protecting your credit union against a data breach and achieving a successful IT exam.
