CISA Issues Alerts Relating to Russian Cyberthreats, Ukraine Cyber Incidents

Authored By: Lewis Wood on 2/9/2022

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued two alerts addressing risks from Russian State-Sponsored cyber threats and highlighting recent malicious cyber incidents suffered by public and private entities in Ukraine.

NCUA, along with CISA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Security Agency encourage credit unions and their cybersecurity teams nationwide to adopt a heightened state of awareness and to conduct proactive threat hunting.

In addition, COVID-related supply chain disruptions may require management to reevaluate previously held assumptions for business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

Credit union leadership should be aware of critical cyber risks and take urgent steps to reduce the likelihood and impact of a potentially damaging compromise.

NCUA encourages credit unions to review the two CISA issuances and act on the applicable recommendations. 

The NCUA recently created the Automated Cybersecurity Evaluation Toolbox (ACET) for federally insured credit unions to evaluate their cybersecurity posture. For more information, please visit the NCUA’s cybersecurity resources website.
