AdvantageCIO launches remote access assessment service

AdvantageCIO, a division of CU*Answers, recently announced it has launched a new cybersecurity assessment service to help credit unions ensure they are following cybersecurity best practices. The service takes an industry standard approach by following guidance from the FFIEC, NCUA, and NIST. It inventories a broad range of controls across a credit union’s footprint and results in a prioritized report with findings and recommendations.

“Cybersecurity has gone from a focus for IT departments to a focus for the C-suite,” explains Matt Sawtell, VP of Managed Technology Services at CU*Answers. “With incidents like the ransomware events of 2021, it’s garnering headlines and mainstream awareness like never before. We are not a typical auditor; we take the approach of a partner and consultant in these engagements. Our approach is not just to assess but also to help with solutions where there are opportunities to improve.”

The service is available now from AdvantageCIO.
