The state Department of Financial Services issued an alert to its regulated institutions, including state-chartered credit unions, warning about the increased likelihood of cyberattacks originating in Iran. The letter was issued after the Iranian government vowed to retaliate for the death of Qassem Soleimani, a senior official in the Iranian military who was killed in a U.S. airstrike Friday.
A divided NCUA board of directors yesterday voted to approve the agency’s risk-based capital delay. The final rule delay’s the agency’s risk-based capital requirements until 2022.
The NCUA board of directors will hold their monthly meeting next Thursday, Dec. 12. During the meeting, the board will vote on a final risk-based capital rule, which could delay the agency’s risk-based capital requirements until 2022.
