Ongoing Operations offers FFIEC DDoS webinar
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (6/20/14)--Ongoing Operations, a CUNA Strategic Services provider, will offer a free webinar on the new Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) distributed denial of service (DDOS) guidelines at 2 p.m. (CT) on June 25.
 
In April, the FFIEC issued guidelines on DDoS risks to U.S. banking institutions. The guidelines state that credit unions should:
  • Maintain an ongoing program to assess information security risk that identifies, prioritizes and assesses the risk to critical systems;
  • Monitor website traffic;
  • Be prepared to activate incident response plans and notify service providers;
  • Ensure sufficient staffing for the duration of a DDoS attack and consider hiring precontracted third-party servicers who can assist in managing the Internet-based traffic;
  • Consider sharing information with organizations such as the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center and law enforcement; and
  • Following the attacks, evaluate any gaps in response or in the risk assessments and adjust controls accordingly.
The Webinar will discuss the six steps the FFIEC expects every credit union to take.
