Stopping Merchant Data Breaches

Credit Unions are strictly regulated with regard to data security and notification of data breaches to affected members under the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act. CUNA supports legislation which holds all entities responsible for data security and that which would allow credit unions to notify members not only that a data breach has occurred but also the source of the breach.
