Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool (ACET)

ACET is an automated tool required for Credit Unions by the NACU to measure their inherent risk profile and test maturity across five domains including cyber risk management and oversight, threat intelligence and collaboration, cybersecurity controls, external dependency management, and cyber incident management and resilience. 

 

Security & Compliance Bundles 2

Credit Unions must maintain an ongoing information security risk assessment program that effectively:

  • Gathers data regarding the information and technology assets of the organization, threats to those assets, vulnerabilities, existing security controls and processes, and the current security standards and requirements
  • Analyzes the probability and impact associated with the known threats and vulnerabilities to their assets
  • Prioritizes the risks present due to threats and vulnerabilities to determine the appropriate level of training, controls, and assurance necessary for effective mitigation

A strategy should be developed that defines control objectives & establishes an implementation plan. Security strategies should include:

  • Appropriate consideration of prevention, detection, and response mechanisms
  • Implementation of the least permissions and least privileges concepts
  • Layered controls that establish multiple control points between threats and organization assets
  • Policies that guide officers and employees in implementing the security program
