    FFIEC Encourages Standardized Approach for Cybersecurity Preparedness

    August 28, 2019

    FFIEC members emphasized the benefits of using a standardized approach to assess and improve cybersecurity preparedness. The members note that firms adopting a standardized approach are better able to track their progress over time and share information and best practices with other financial institutions and with regulators. FFIEC members welcome collaborative approaches to advance and support cyber preparedness and enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the supervisory process.

    Institutions may choose from a variety of standardized tools aligned with industry standards and best practices to assess their cybersecurity preparedness. These tools include the following:

    • FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool
    • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework
    • Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC) Cybersecurity Profile
    • Center for Internet Security Critical Security Controls

    While FFIEC does not endorse any particular tool, these standardized tools support institutions in their self-assessment activities. The tools are not examination programs and the FFIEC members take a risk-focused approach to examinations. As cyber risk evolves, examiners may address areas not covered by all tools.
