Strategic Link Announces New Partnership with IP Services


The Northwest Credit Union Association and IP Services have partnered to provide cybersecurity and information technology systems management solutions to Association member credit unions.

National safeguards and standards are being established to protect financial institutions and consumers from the constant threat of breaches. Individual credit unions should adopt the same strategy to thwart next generation cyber-attacks.

It is critical that credit unions deploy a proactive security strategy that manages information technology assets, ensures service availability, and manages risk mitigation. IP Services solves these challenges by using an integrated set of processes and controls to ensure uninterrupted systems and business performance while adhering to strict compliance and security requirements.

“IP Services has a long and successful history of managing critical IT systems for various financial organizations,” NWCUA Vice President of Strategic Resources Jason Smith, said. “We are pleased to connect them with our member credit unions based on their knowledge and experience. IP Services has a unique ability to manage and secure IT assets in a way this is cost effective and compliant across the infrastructure.”

Northwest credit union leaders will have the opportunity to meet the IP Services team during the NWCUA’s annual MAXX Convention in Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 16-18. IP Services is an exhibitor at the Strategic Link Trade Show during the event. They can be found at booth 119.

“IP Services is excited to partner with the NWCUA and build lasting relationships with credit unions throughout the Northwest,” said Scott Alldridge, CEO of IP Services. “This partnership will improve credit unions’ ability to meet audit and compliance requirements, and bridge the gap between business and IT strategies.”
