NCUA’s Commitment to the Security of CUSO Data
The Freedom of Information Act and the NCUA’s FOIA regulations, as well as the applicable exemptions, apply to the information a CUSO submits to the NCUA. The NCUA anticipates that a CUSO may submit information that includes trade secrets and privileged or confidential commercial or financial information. We are committed to securing this data as required by FOIA, and will not release such information to the public. The NCUA will share CUSO information with state supervisory authorities that have signed information-sharing agreements with the agency.
