Northwest Credit Unions Boost Breach and Fraud Protection with Vero Partnership

Northwest credit unions have worked valiantly to protect their members from the growing storm of data breaches and identity fraud that has swept the nation in the past several years. As the storm continues to build, Strategic Link, your source for the best vetted credit union vendors, has partnered with Vero, a leading provider of identity theft and data breach protection and recovery services for the credit union industry.

Vero both prevents breaches and serves as the ultimate safety net when breaches do occur. With fully managed recovery and restoration services, Vero relieves the members and credit union of the potential nightmare they face if all the deterrents can’t prevent an identity theft or data breach from happening.

“We are committed to helping Northwest credit unions and their members combat the growing threat of identity fraud, and this partnership with Vero makes great sense with the tidal wave of data breaches happening throughout the country,” said NWCUA COO Denise Gabel.

Jim McCabe, Vero’s Senior Vice President of ID Theft Services, said of the new partnership, “Partnering with NWCUA allows us to reach more credit unions in Oregon and Washington State, and their members, at a time when it is critical to have quality ID theft and fraud recovery services. Unfortunately, the data breach trend in 2015 is more of what we saw in 2014, if not worse, so credit unions need to incorporate strategies and solutions that effectively protect themselves and their members.”

Gabel added that in addition to identity theft and data breach solutions, Northwest Credit Union Association members have more than twenty strategic partnerships at their fingertips, providing assistance in Card Services, Consulting, Human Resources, Insurance, Lending, Mobile Banking, emerging financial technologies and much more.
