SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, The National Credit Union ISAO announces its renewed partnership with TruSTAR, a leader in data-centric automation and management, to continue offering centralized intelligence sharing and management teams and tools to their members.
The mission of the NCU-ISAO is to enable and sustain Credit Union critical infrastructure cyber resilience and preserve the public trust by advancing trusted security coordination and collaboration to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from threats and vulnerabilities.
Credit Union Cyber Resilience is dependent upon access to the real-time availability of proactive "actionable" threat intelligence, analysis, coordinated countermeasure response, best practice adoption, and role-based workforce education. Protecting critical infrastructure requires an unprecedented level of cooperation, collaboration, and coordination supported by an infrastructure connected trusted sector and cross-sector communities.
TruSTAR's cloud-native intelligence management platform improves the efficiency of security operations and helps teams eliminate integration debt through Data-Centric Security Automation. TruSTAR operationalizes intelligence into investigative workflows by integrating with industry-leading technology partners across varying industries and ISAC/ISAOs.
The TruSTAR platform addresses multiple use cases in the financial sector from card skimming to Ransomware to AI expansion, and allows security teams to better utilize their time and skill sets by automating and augmenting security workflows.
"The entire TruSTAR team has been committed to building a strong partnership with our organization and its members since day one. Their powerful platform is robust and easy to use and supports a wide range of use cases for our members from information sharing to intelligence automation. We are grateful to have them as a key partner to help us advance the cyber resilience of our nation's credit unions and look forward to working with them for many years to come." says Brian Hinze, Managing Director, VP Member Services and Operations at the NCU-ISAO.
