Top 10 Missing FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Controls

The FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment process is here to stay. At a minimum, most regulators are requiring financial institutions to complete an assessment on an annual basis. This process includes a review of an institutions Inherent Risk Level, identification of currently implemented controls to reduce risk, and a gap analysis to identify additional controls needed to reach the institutions desired risk appetite.

Over 1000 financial institutions have completed their Cybersecurity Assessment using our complementary assessment solution. SBS has analyzed the results and identified the top 10 most common controls not implemented by financial institutions. Some of these are baseline maturity level controls which financial institution MUST complete regardless of their inherent risk score.
