FDIC Offers Additional Cybersecurity Resources

The FDIC today updated its suite of cybersecurity resources with additional online educational tools to help bank executives and directors address the growing threat of cyber crime. The new resources include two new cybersecurity awareness videos aimed at bank directors. The videos give an overview of the current threat environment and provide information on how banks can effectively adapt information security programs to respond to cyber threats while using the regulators’ Cybersecurity Assessment Tool.

The FDIC also added three additional vignettes — ransomware, ATL malware and DDoS as a smokescreen — to its online “Cyber Challenge,” a voluntary tool designed to encourage discussion among bank management about operational risk by responding to hypothetical scenarios.
