IT Security Just as Crucial for Community Banks and Credit Unions

Community banks and credit unions are the lifeblood of small towns around the country, providing their customers and members with the same financial services that the larger banks offer. Just as with the larger banks, small community banks and credit unions must keep their information secure, and they must accomplish that with much less capital investment than their larger counterparts.

Even in small communities, bank IT security administration takes place in an ever-changing landscape of new devices, new software, new vulnerabilities and new tools. As threats to computer security evolve, so do the practices and tools for IT security in banks. This diversity of computing devices significantly complicates bank IT security management and planning.

So, how can small bank IT administrators secure computing systems, defend them against attacks, limit damage proactively, and recover from attacks rapidly? Keeping systems secure requires vigilance and upgraded tools.
