with the FFIEC CAT and ACET compliance elements built-in, and links
policies to real-time alerts so credit unions can demonstrate to
regulators and examiners that they are secure and compliant with

“We are proud to partner with DefenseStorm because they are so clearly
dedicated to credit unions, and to providing them with real-time cyber
safety and soundness. Their solutions are vital to the success,
security, and stability of financial institutions,” said Randy Salser,
President of NAFCU Services Corporation.

“With approximately 20 million cyber events occurring per day per
financial institution, the volume and sophistication of today’s cyber
threats are definitely challenging credit unions to maintain and prove
‘Cyber Safety and Soundness.’ For this reason, we are thrilled to
partner with the NAFCU community, an organization that is entirely
dedicated to the empowerment and betterment of credit unions,” stated
Sean Feeney, CEO of DefenseStorm.
