GLBA Information Security:
Teaching Acceptable Use to Your Users

User Awareness
Because Information Security is a team effort, awareness is the most important control.  Financial Institutions must maintain an appropriate Acceptable Use Policy and teach the concepts inherent in that policy.  The training should stress the threats and vulnerabilities financial institutions face, and help users understand their role in mitigating information security risk.  According to the FFIEC, authorized internal users should receive a copy of the [Acceptable Use] policy and appropriate training, and signify their understanding and agreement with the policy before management grants access to the system.

  • Awareness at all “Levels” of the institution.
  • An example Annual Training Workshop.
