Information Security Reviews
Section 748, Appendix A requires that a Credit Union have a formal information security program that insures the security and confidentiality of member records and information; protects against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such records; and protects against unauthorized access to or use of such records or information that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any member. Further, Appendix B establishes requirements for the implementation of an incident response program for unauthorized access to member information.
