CUNA to Offer Security Videos that Help Comply with FFIEC Guidelines for Consumer Education
MADISON, Wis. (October 17, 2012) — A new agreement between CUNA and Stickley on Security offers credit unions a low-cost solution to help comply with FFIEC guidelines regarding consumer education about identity theft and security precautions.
“Compliance includes risk mitigation, so helping your members identify and prevent ID theft should be a component of any credit union’s security program,” says Valerie Y. Moss, director of compliance information, CUNA Regulatory Affairs.
Credit union members are among the more than 11.6 million adult victims of identity fraud, which increased by 13 percent last year according to the 2012 Identity Fraud Industry Report issued by Javelin Strategy & Research.
The Stickley on Security training solution helps consumers stay informed about the latest security risks facing them and what they can do to protect themselves. The solution provides written content and a library of security training videos that can be embedded into any existing web page with just a single line of code. The library of security videos, ranging from five to 10 minutes in length, addresses topics such as ATM scams, credit card skimming, phishing and vishing attacks, secure mobile banking, fake cashier’s checks, multifactor authentication and more.
“With Stickley on Security both our members and employees have fresh, relevant, and educational information at their fingertips,” said Kelley Ferguson, chief information officer at Numerica Credit Union, Spokane Valley, Washington. “This is a great upgrade to our member education program in an ongoing effort to help our members stay safe. I would recommend this to anyone who has a commitment to helping their members stay safe and informed.”
CUNA is a supporting coalition member of National Foundation for Credit Counseling’s fifth annual National Protect Your Identity Week, October 20-27, 2012. “Credit unions interested in protecting member privacy can leverage the videos during Protect Your Identity Week and beyond,” said Susan Tiffany, CUNA’s director of consumer publications. “The content of the video library is dynamic, so it addresses consumer security threats as they evolve.”
Pricing for the Stickley on Security training solution starts at $399.99 a year. Through the CUNA partnership, credit unions can receive an additional three months at no charge. For more information, visit www.cuna.org/sos.
