Traditional bank-centric information security programs have centered on protecting customer information as required by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and codified in the Interagency Guidelines Establishing Information Security Standards. GLBA is now almost 20 years old. Long gone are the days when financial institutions were solely operating within four walls. Today, just about every institution utilizes the Internet to deliver innovative services, expand geographic reach, and attract new customers. The proportion of electronic vs. traditional banking transactions is growing rapidly. In many cases, the products and services are owned, managed, and maintained by third-parties.
The interconnectedness and motivation of cybercriminals and cyber terrorist organizations to steal, disrupt, and cause harm means that financial institutions must constantly rethink their approach to cybersecurity. Cybersecurity expands the traditional definition of information security by including the organization itself, its infrastructure, and the protection of all systems and data, as well as the evaluation of internal and external dependencies.
Preparing for and responding to this growing threat from cyber-attackers is an essential element for business continuity and maintaining confidence in your financial institution's infrastructure.
Organizations that are prepared to mitigate cyber risks have executives that are aware and informed of the current cybersecurity threat environment. These stakeholders set policy, approve budgets, and provide oversight and leadership, so setting the tone from the top is essential.
