<p>MADISON, Wis.-CUNA Mutual Group has singled out Inacom Information Systems and Williams Young, LLC as “Preferred Partners” for credit unions looking for IT security programs that meet new NCUA regulations. NCUA Rule 748, which requires credit unions to develop written security programs and advises credit unions to apply tests to evaluate the key control systems of their security program, prompted the move by CUNA Mutual to review security risk management capabilities of many companies. After discussing information security needs with a credit union, CUNA Mutual will then refer the credit union to its list of Preferred Partners, who can provide an array of security assessment services. “As credit unions expand their Internet accessibility and capabilities, they need to invest as much attention to the new and significant risk exposures that accompany those capabilities,” said Allen Stendahl, vice president of credit union protection support. “A security assessment by a third-party vendor not only satisfies NCUA requirements, it helps ensure security and member confidence that credit unions need to provide.”</p>
