Earlier this year, the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council (FFIEC) launched a pilot program at more than 500 institutions, to help state and federal regulators assess how these community financial institutions manage cybersecurity preparedness in order to understand and mitigate increasing cyber risks. During The Bank Summit 2014, Peter Bamber, CISA, CRISC, CISSP, Vice President, Information Security Consulting Services, for Security Management Partners will discuss what is being learned from the FFIEC pilot program and provide an update on what financial institutions can do to protect their organizations from the threat of cyber-attacks. Bamber will highlight the aims of the program including risk management, cybersecurity controls, cyber incident management, vendor risk management, service provider oversight and understanding threat intelligence. In addition, Bamber will explain how the program is helping regulators make risk-informed decisions that will enhance the effectiveness of supervisory programs, guidance and examiner training. Session attendees will learn details of the FFIEC pilot program and what these efforts mean for their organization.

IT leaders and finance executives who are interested in learning more about the FFIEC pilot program and cybersecurity preparedness for financial institutions are encouraged to attend this informative session.
