Cybersecurity: Help Your Financial Institution Clients Assess Their Risk

« Back to Blog


Cybersecurity Is a Critical Issue for Financial Institutions

Recently the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), on behalf of its members, released a Cybersecurity Assessment Tool to help institutions identify their risks and assess their cybersecurity preparedness.

Designed for Financial Institutions of all sizes, the assessment tool and a number of other resources, including an executive overview, user’s guide and instructional presentation, are available on the Cybersecurity Awareness page of the website at

In addition to the assessment tool itself, mapping of the tool to the Cybersecurity Framework issued by the National Institute for Standards and Technology is available as well as a mapping of the Baseline Statements of the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool to the FFIEC Information Technology Handbook.

The Cybersecurity Assessment Tool is a valuable resource for your Financial Institution clients; please share this information with them as appropriate.
