NAFCU Services Corp. has joined with Cyveillance to offer anti-phishing monitoring, brand protection and consumer education for credit union social media sites.
The Cyveillance Secure Social Media Management program includes policy enforcement, brand and identity protection and cyber safety awareness education, the company and trade organization said.
Functions include a secure customer portal that can be locked down using e-mail, user names and passwords or restricting the account pages to marketing and promotional purposes.
Analysts have pointed to the increasing threat of identity theft through social media sites as users post potentially compromising information that exposes them to targeted phishing attacks.
David Frankil, president of NAFCU Services, said, "As our members look to increase their social media presence to connect and communicate with members and prospective members, they are challenged to ensure that those interactions remain safe and productive."
Based in Arlington, Va., Cyveillance said its services are now used by the majority of the Fortune 50 companies and regional financial institutions nationwide. Its client list also includes Microsoft and AOL.
