The credit union industry has gone from pencil and pen to calculator to computer in the blink of an eye. The successful use of technology has created unprecedented opportunities for growth and success, as serving your members is no longer limited to on-site customer service. The Internet and ATM technology put your credit union in every community and in every home.
Management of these new resources, however, has also required enormous investment in infrastructure and new forms of security.
While creating new opportunities for success, technology also creates new opportunities for fraud and loss. Protecting against robbery was a matter of investment in traditional security devices such as video cameras, alarms, and risk management staff training. Robbery and mismanagement were the menaces of the past. Hacking is the new risk. Credit unions must be vigilant, make the necessary decisions and investments to protect their operations.
