The National Credit Union Administration is hosting a webinar on the National Credit Union Administration’s Automated Cybersecurity Evaluation Toolbox (ACET) beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, October 28.
NCUA Chairman Todd M. Harper will participate in this 60-minute webinar, which features a video presentation about the Toolbox followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by staff from the NCUA’s Offices of Credit Union Resources and Expansion and Examination and Insurance.
The Toolbox is a downloadable self-contained application developed for credit unions as a holistic cybersecurity resource. The Toolbox guides credit unions through the ACET Maturity Assessment, which is aligned with the Federal Financial Information Examination Council’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT). Using the ACET Maturity Assessment allows institutions of all sizes to determine and measure their own cybersecurity preparedness over time.
In addition, the Toolbox contains several other types of industry recognized cybersecurity best practices and standards. Among those is the Ransomware Readiness Assessment (RRA) - released by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). The RRA is a self-assessment based on a tiered set of practices to help organizations better assess how well they are equipped to defend and recover from a ransomware incident.
Participants will be able to log into the webinar and view it on their computers or mobile devices using the registration link. They should allow pop-ups from this website.
Participants can submit questions anytime during the presentation or in advance by emailing WebinarQuestions@ncua.gov. The email’s subject line should read, “NCUA ACET.” Please email technical questions about accessing the webinar to firstname.lastname@example.org. This webinar will be closed captioned and archived online approximately three weeks following the live event.
