In 2018, the NCUA began piloting the use of the Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool (ACET) based on the FFIEC's Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT) to review credit unions.  While the ACET mirrors the CAT in content, ACET provides additional features and details to help credit unions and the NCUA to examine and benchmark the industry's cybersecurity preparedness.

Join Leticia Saiid from CoNetrix and special guest Wayne Trout from the NCUA to learn:

  • where the ACET came from
  • what examiners hope to gain by using it
  • what to expect in upcoming NCUA exams
  • a step-by-step process to complete the ACET in preparation for your next exam
