Proposed Rule on Reportable Cyber Incidents Approved by Board

The NCUA Board approved a proposed rule that would require a federally insured credit union (FICU) to notify the NCUA as soon as possible but no later than 72 hours after they reasonably believe that a reportable cyber incident has occurred.

Under the proposed rule, a FICU would be required to report a cyber incident that leads to a substantial loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability of a member information system as a result of the exposure of sensitive data, disruption of vital member services, or that has a serious impact on the safety and resiliency of operational systems and processes.

Board Approves Threshold for Determining the Appropriate Supervisory Office

The NCUA Board approved a final rule that amends the NCUA’s regulations to change the $10 billion asset threshold for assigning federally insured credit unions to the Office of National Examinations and Supervision (ONES).

Effective Jan. 1, 2023, credit unions with assets between $10 billion and $15 billion will be supervised by their appropriate regional office. All credit unions above $10 billion in assets currently supervised by ONES will continue to be supervised by that office under the final rule. Credit unions that cross the $15 billion threshold will by supervised by ONES. The proposed rule does not alter any other regulatory requirements for credit unions covered under these regulations.
