Credit Unions Secure Critical Data with Arctic Wolf

Hundreds of Credit Union Security Leaders Secure Critical Data with Arctic Wolf

Credit unions continue to be prime targets for cybercriminals due to the highly confidential nature of the data they possess. Adding to the complexity of protecting sensitive data, they must also comply with stringent federal and state regulations and industry compliance requirements.
While they are expected to battle all the same challenges, credit unions typically have smaller operating budgets and fewer resources than larger regional or national financial institutions. Lack of visibility across a patchwork of siloed systems, compliance and reporting obligations and overburdened teams distilling thousands of alerts from multiple systems compound the industry’s ongoing challenge to fortify defenses against increasingly sophisticated attacks.

Threats & Concerns

As cyber threats continue to evolve, credit unions remain an attractive target for cybercriminals.
Nearly half of all credit unions and more than half of their vendors could have critical vulnerabilities in their technology that leave them at increased risk of cyber attacks according to a new report from Black Kite.
The biggest risks include vendor weaknesses, a lack of email security, and out-of-date computer systems. Cyber attacks on credit unions could result in financial risk ranging from $190,000 for small credit unions to over $1.2 million for larger institutions, according to the report. Researchers calculated that the financial impact of an attack on just one vendor could exceed $1 million for large credit unions and $300,000 for small credit unions. That does not account for the fact that credit unions may be using a number of vendors.

The most common cybersecurity threats facing credit unions today:

Account Takeovers (ATO)

  • Once inside a breached network, this type of malware harvests online account credentials.
Ransomware and Sophisticated Cyber Attacks
  • With a ransomware attack occurring every 11 seconds, credit unions must be vigilant.
  • IBM Security’s 2022 Intelligence Threat Index found that ransomware attacks have emerged as the most common type of cybersecurity incursion. Such incidents bring high costs in the form of financial losses, lost time and productivity, and reputational damage.
  • With today’s geopolitical tensions, the risk and sophistication of cyber warfare has grown.

Insider attack, in which an employee or trusted vendor compromises an institution’s data

Vulnerabilities via the adoption of new fintech exposing credit unions to more attack openings
