The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) will host two webinars for financial institutions in October in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
Mobile Financial Services — Appendix E of the Retail Payment System Booklet, October 13, 2016, at 3 p.m. Eastern. The FFIEC members updated the Information Technology examination handbook on April 29 to address financial institutions’ use of new and emerging technologies, specifically the rapid proliferation and technological advancements in the use and capabilities of mobile devices with respect to financial services. This webinar will provide an overview of the contents of the Appendix E of the Retail Payments Systems booklet and an opportunity to receive answers to questions regarding mobile financial services. Registration is available here.
Getting the Most Out of Your FS-ISAC Membership, October 31, 2016, 1 p.m. Eastern. On Nov. 3, 2014, the FFIEC members issued a statement on Cybersecurity Threat and Vulnerability Monitoring and Sharing that encouraged financial institutions to join the Financial Services-Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC). Many financial institutions have expressed a desire to gain a better understanding on how to filter and utilize the information they receive through this membership service. This webinar will feature a guest speaker from the FS-ISAC who will provide tips on how to manage the information flow and filter information through the membership portal. Registration is available here.
The target audience is members of the financial services sector. All registration requests will be reviewed and access may be denied for non-sector registrants.
