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.
CUNA wrote in support of legislation Monday that is a step forward in addressing the threat of litigation under the Americans With Disabilities Act, urging legislators to consider how credit unions are being impacted by frivolous litigation.
The House Financial Services Committee passed 8 CUNA-supported regulatory relief bills Thursday. CUNA wrote in support of the bills prior to the markup, particularly one that would raise the CFPB's supervisory threshold to $50 billion.
