Are You Prepared for the FFIEC Examinations?

Posted by Trevan Marden on Oct 5, 2015

We’ve been having a lot of conversations recently with banks and financial organizations about not only meeting GLBA and PCI-DSS requirements, but also making sure they are prepared for the FFIEC examinations. On the heels of the release of the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool this summer, financial organizations are recognizing shortcomings and gaps with their current security processes and systems and looking for ways to correct the issues within constraints of limited budgets, time, and other resources.


Two key areas that EiQ Networks is well equipped to address with our SOCVue services are security controls implementation and security monitoring. Our service aligns well with the SANS/CIS Critical Security Controls, tracking items such as inventory of authorized devices and applications, event and incident correlation, alerting, and more to detect unusual activity. Our SOC analysts provide 24x7 monitoring of your network devices and provide guidance if any anomalous activity is discovered.  By leveraging the EiQ SOCVue team, your organization can implement security controls and get the security monitoring you need without increasing headcount or using capex budget. Our team is able to provide regular reports of your security status mapped to specific FFIEC IT Handbook guidelines. Reports can also be mapped to regulatory requirements such as NIST, GLBA, PCI, and others.
