FFIEC emphasizes Cyber-security Awareness
As we all become more reliant on technology for everything from social engagements to business, the threats to the security of our information has increased dramatically. Due to the increased threat level, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has implemented a number of initiatives to raise awareness of cyber-security risks and the need for risk assessment and mitigation among financial institutions.
In order to help give institutions more tools the FFIEC now has a dedicated page on their website devoted to cyber-security http://www.ffiec.gov/cybersecurity.htm. This is a valuable resource for staying current with the threats and issues that affect your IT security. The web page is a central location for news updates, FFIEC resources, and third-party resources. This page can be a great tool for keeping yourself and your staff informed.
It’s very important to know the state of your IT security and the FFIEC has added one more tool to your toolbox to make sure that you can stay ahead of the bad guys. If you’d like more information on how you can protect your financial institution from IT security threats give ITPAC a call today.
