CAT & ACET ASSESSMENTS
FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool & Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool

2017 - ACETThe Credit Union National Association (CUNA) released the Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool (ACET) to mirror the FFIEC’s CAT. Just like the FFIEC’s Tool, ACET IT assessments consist of two parts: the Inherent Risk Profile and the Cybersecurity Maturity level.

"The assessment Rivial did for us provided a ton of value. We were given a well-organized, high-quality report that spoke clearly to our Board and outlined technical details later in the document. Our examiners appreciated the thorough work that was done and the reporting format. I enjoyed working with Rivial and plan to do so again in the future."
