FSSCC Automated Cybersecurity Assessment Tool

FSSCC Automated Cybersecurity Assessment Tool 

Background:  Recently, the FS-ISAC collaborated with members of the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC) on an automated tool to assist financial institutions of all sizes to collect and score their responses to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool.  In June 2015, the FFIEC released the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool to help institutions of all sizes identify their risks, assess their cybersecurity preparedness, and help inform their risk management strategies. Note the following: a) Language specific to inherent risk profile categories and cyber maturity levels was taken verbatim from the FFIEC’s tool and incorporated into a user-friendly Excel spreadsheet; b) No attempts were made to interpret or change any of the FFIEC’s stated expectations; and c) Some FFIEC agencies are using the results of the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool as part of the examination and supervisory process.  Click here to access the FSSCC tool (will automatically download as an XLS).
