MADISON, Wis. (5/7/08)--Credit unions can perform in-house risk assessments, prepare for technology audits and find out how and why a security breach occurs, by using three products recently added to the CUNA Strategic Services/Trace Security alliance agreement. The three solutions are: TraceSecurity Risk Manager, Information (IT) Technology Security Audit Manager (TS-ITSAM) and Computer Forensics Investigation. Risk Manager examines safeguards, vulnerabilities, threats, asset information and loss expectancies, allowing credit unions to assess focus areas to determine overall risk. Credit unions can determine which controls to implement on specific assets based on members’ use and risk. Risk Manager also automates the assessment process and provides continuous updates with new threat and expanded safeguards. TS-ITSAM compiles and evaluates data related to governance, policies and procedures. It analyzes business and regulatory standards against organizational standards and regulatory controls. The solution aligns with Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council audits and simplifies the process by placing audit domains into manageable segments to speed up the audit process. The results are condensed into an executive summary or traditional reporting format. Computer Forensics Investigation conducts a forensic analysis of a credit union’s computers, firewall, electronic data and other components of its IT infrastructure to identify evidence of how a breach occurred. A detailed report of the findings can help support legal proceedings, determine computer misuse, assist internal investigations and provide other electronic discovery.
