FFIEC Announces Webinars in Observance of Cybersecurity Awareness Month
The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) will host two webinars for financial institutions in October in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
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.
Other recent FFIEC actions addressing cybersecurity are available at http://www.ffiec.gov/cybersecurity.htm.
The FFIEC was established in March 1979 to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms and to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions. It also conducts schools for examiners employed by the five federal member agencies represented on the FFIEC and makes those schools available to employees of state agencies that supervise financial institutions. The Council consists of the following six voting members: a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; the Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; the Comptroller of the Currency; the Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration; and the Chairman of the State Liaison Committee.
