Compliance Hotline Question of the Week:
Question: Is a website audit required annually, if not how often?
Answer: It is important for credit unions to conduct regular reviews of their website to ensure that it is in compliance with laws, regulations, and industry standards, as well as to ensure that it is accurate, up-to-date, and secure.
The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) does not have specific regulations regarding the frequency of website reviews for credit unions, but it does require credit unions to have policies and procedures in place to ensure that the information on their websites is accurate and not misleading. The NCUA also recommends that credit unions review their website for compliance with regulations, security risks, and other factors at least annually.
It is also important to review the website as needed when updates or changes are made to it, such as new products or services, promotions, or changes in the credit union's operations. It is also important to review the website when new laws or regulations that may impact the credit union's website come into effect.
