Information Technology Services

 
 

Security of technology assets has always been a high priority within the financial institution industry.

However, with the advent of Internet banking over the last couple of years, the security of technology has become even more important as financial institutions and their service providers have connected their networks to the Internet.

According to SANS (System Administration, Auditing, Networking and Security) Institute financial institutions typically fail in their effort to provide adequate security in the following ways:

  • Lack of trained and certified personnel
  • Understanding the relationship between the business and Information technology
  • Relying primarily on the firewall
  • Not recognizing financial aspect of their IT infrastructure
  • Pretending that problem will go away if they ignore it

Financial Regulatory Consulting has established industry recognized policies and practices with emphasis on financial industry requirements following the guidelines required by FFIEC. Some of the areas that are required to be assessed are:

  • Security Process
  • Information Security Risk Assessment
  • Risk Mitigation and Control Implementation
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Risk Monitoring and Testing
  • Internal Network Assessment
  • External Penetration Testing
  • Policies and Procedures
  • GLBA Compliance
  • IT Controls Implementation
