State of Banking Information Security 2008 - Participant Overview

State of Banking Information Security 2008 - Participant Overview

Based on this exclusive survey of security leaders at U.S. financial institutions, this report reveals surprising insights on the latest trends, threats and priorities, including:

Vendor Management - Two-thirds of respondents outsource, but only 40% have moderate confidence in their vendors' information security controls;
Security Awareness - Institutions grade themselves average to failing when it comes to educating employees and customers;
Incident Response - 61% of respondents don't test their plans annually. Nearly one-quarter don't have plans that account for incidents at vendors;
Customer Confidence - Respondents believe their customers are confident in banking institutions' security controls. But how confident should they be?


Information Security Media Group has just concluded its first annual State of Banking Information Security survey, polling hundreds of security leaders at institutions of all sizes re: 2008's top trends, threats and priorities.

Survey results reveal a strong disconnect between the confidence security leaders have in their protective measures versus the questions they and their customers should be asking, based on our findings re: Incident response, vendor management and security awareness.

In an exclusive webinar for survey respondents, Tom Field, Editorial Director for ISMG, provided an overview of the key results, including:

Security Leaders' Roles & Responsibilities;
Vendor Management Challenge;
Need for Customer Education;
Improving Incident Response;
Business Continuity: Preparing for Pandemics;
Security Breaches: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You;
2008 Agenda for Banking Information Security Leaders.
