FDIC Penetration Testing
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, requires its insured banks, state saving institutions, and state branches of foreign banks to develop and implement information security programs. To remain FDIC compliant, these financial institutions must maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of information, systems and networks.
Financial institutions keep highly valuable sensitive information in paper, electronic and other forms. Regardless of the form the information takes, FDIC Security Standards call for this information to be safeguarded such that:
- Security and confidentiality of customer information is ensured
- Threats and hazards are not only anticipated but also protected against
- Controls are in place to prevent illicit access of information
- Customer and consumer information is properly disposed.
Financial institutions are a prime target for identity thieves. FDIC security standards seek to enforce greater protections and drive financial institutions to take preventative measures to safeguard customer and consumer information.
The standards don’t stop though at identifying, protecting, and preventing. They also require response protocols so that a bank can demonstrate readiness to address any incidents of unauthorized access.
