WASHINGTON (3/29/16)--Individuals wishing to provide feedback on the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council Cybersecurity Assessment Tool will have the chance April 7, as part of a National Standards of Institute and Technology cybersecurity workshop.
Increasingly frequent and severe cyberattacks involving extortion sparked a warning to credit unions and other financial institutions from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council Tuesday.
The regulatory burdens for credit unions due to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool will be much greater than the council estimates, according to CUNA.
CUNA compliance staff met with National Credit Union Administration staff this week to discuss the details of the new Cybersecurity Assessment Tool issued by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council.
The CFPB is expected to release its proposal on debt collection in conjunction with a July 28 field hearing in Sacramento, Calif. CUNA has met with the bureau a number of times to address the forthcoming rulemaking.
A bipartisan majority of 70 U.S. senators are calling on the CFPB to tailor rulemakings to protect credit unions from regulatory burden. The combined advocacy efforts of CUNA and state leagues bring total signers from both chambers to 399.
