A Resource Guide for Bank Executives
An article review.
Bank cybersecurity easily explained
Our friend, Dennis Teague of MainSource Financial Group, brought this resource guide to our attention, and we thought it worthwhile to share with you. This 40 page guide highlights and easily explains many of the cybersecurity risks and challenges facing banks today.
The guide is published by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, based in Washington, D.C., and is well named, Cybersecurity 101: A Resource Guide for Bank Executives. Now for those of you not in the banking industry, you still may want to take a look at this.
The guide is a non-technical, easy-to-read resource on cybersecurity that community bank CEOs, senior executives and board members can use to help mitigate cybersecurity threats at their banks. The guide puts industry-recognized standards and best practices for cybersecurity currently used within the financial services industry all into one place.
The above is what we call an “Article Review.” It is part of our attempt to help our readers find excellent reading materials to back up important technology risk management concepts. We try not to include articles that are merely news or additional news about mainstream issues. Instead, we try to highlight articles that our “typical clients” should be sure to read, or that are about concepts “outside the mainstream media.” infotex does not intend to endorse views represented by the writers of the articles we review, nor do we try to keep our Clients aware of EVERYTHING. For example, if a particular story concept is being reported upon in many different media sources, infotex usually chooses to ignore the story concept altogether, unless we can find a “unique take” on the story concept.
