Risk management requires knowledge, including awareness of exposure and contributing factors, methods for limiting risk, and response to losses. Our objective is to support credit union knowledge and ability to manage risk by promoting relevant resources and events, and strengthening local expertise networks.
Financial fraud and cybersecurity threats are a complex reality, countered by tools for prevention, response, and member support. The League encourages member credit unions to take full advantage of these fraud resources, which include CCUL Fraud Alerts, webinars, and third-party fraud resources.

Risk is not necessarily a negative term. In the financial world, it is a necessity. So, while risk-focused examinations (RFE) are part of what the NCUA does, the agency does not seek to eliminate risk in credit unions; rather, it wants to ensure risks are managed at appropriate levels, given the structure and net worth of the institution. As part of the RFE program, the NCUA reviews seven specific categories that provide a more comprehensive view of your credit union’s market risks and institution risks profile.
