CU*Answers Releases White Paper Assessing the Risk of DDoS Attacks

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (May 16, 2013) CU*Answers, the 100% credit union-owned, cooperative CUSO headquartered In Grand Rapids, MI has published a white paper focusing on assessing the risk of Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks (DDoS). The white paper was developed in conjunction with AuditLink, an auditing and compliance division of CU*Answers Managed Services. The document fully describes a DDoS attack and what credit unions can do to protect themselves and prepare for examinations from regulators.

“DDoS attacks are in the news and on the minds of examiners,” Scott Page, EVP of CU*Answers said.  “AuditLink has done a phenomenal job in providing guidelines for a credit union to assess their vulnerabilities and practical tips to address those concerns. A credit union needs to show they have controls in place and a grasp of what the business impact can be – and be able to show examiners they are aware and proactive. This white paper provides credit unions a valuable resource to do just that.”
