What are the risks of not updating your credit union's software?

  • Maintenance costs – PCs older than four years can potentially cost 1.5 times more in repairs and cost, on average, an additional $1,700 per year in total maintenance costs.
  • Security risk – More than 50% of small businesses have suffered a data breach or cyberattack, with costs averaging more than US $84,000 per breach.
