In addition to contract requirements, FFIEC guidance followed by state and federal regulators indicate that a regular review of employee permissions is advised. Creating and executing a security audit based on your credit unions organizational polices and government regulations can be perplexing. Factors impacting your audit might include access to technical resources to inspect and assess security controls and the appropriate access to the intellectual capital required to review and implement best practices.
Establishing a systematic, measurable technical assessment of how your credit unions security policy is employed will help you identify your biggest security risks so you can make changes that will protect your credit union from those risks. Performing a full audit when job descriptions change and when other significant changes impacting your human resources occurs is vital. Once this audit is complete your credit union should institute a formal process to complete access control changes on a continuous basis and then document the audit for the Supervisory Committee, regulators, and third-party auditors.
