As banking Trojans continue to grow and attackers continue to target financial institutions, many credit unions are relying on cyberthreat intelligence for protection against the latest threats.  Threat intelligence is the knowledge and actionable advice about existing and emerging threats. It helps you know what threats are headed your way and how you can effectively respond to them. It‘s like a cybersecurity blanket, always hovering above your network providing you with an extra layer of protection.  

Since attackers prefer to target commercial banks, credit unions and other financial institutions over other industries, threat intelligence is growing within the industry. It is a regulatory requirement that banks and credit unions understand the foreseeable threat, not just the ones hitting their networks. Threat intelligence not only provides you with knowledge of the foreseeable threat, it can also help you remove threats that are already lurking inside your network.
