CUNA, FS-ISAC to host NCUA for Free ACET webinar Thursday

CUNA and the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) will host a webinar with NCUA examiners Thursday to explain the new Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool (ACET). The free webinar is scheduled for 3 to 5 p.m. (ET), and registration is now open.

ACET provides NCUA with a “repeatable, measurable and transparent process for assessing the level of cyber preparedness across federally insured institutions,” according to the agency. NCUA said in its supervisory priorities for 2018 it will begin using ACET during credit union exams this year.
