Background - What You Need to Know

In 2014, recognizing the frightening growth of cyber security threats, the FFIEC launched a study to evaluate the preparedness of community financial institutions against cyber risks.

Based on the results, the FFIEC introduced the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool in June 2015.  This tool helps financial institutions determine:

  • Inherent Risk Profile -  inherent risk relevant to cyber risks
  • Cyber Security Maturity - current state of cyber security preparedness

Using these results, top management, the board and risk managers can then make strategic decisions to protect themselves and better prepare for cyber attacks.
