The entire FFIEC Guidance series:


The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council has formally released the long-awaited supplement to its "Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment" guidance, which was first issued by the FFIEC in October 2005. Formal assessments for compliance with the new guidance will begin in January 2012.

The purpose of the supplement is to reinforce the risk-management framework described in the original guidance and update the FFIEC member agencies' supervisory expectations regarding customer authentication, layered security, and other controls in the increasingly hostile online environment.

The official supplement highlights the need for:

  • Better risk assessments;
  • Effective strategies for mitigating known online risks;
  • Improved customer and employee fraud awareness.

In this exclusive session, Philip Alexander, information security officer at a major U.S. financial institution will discuss exactly what technology vendors need to know about the FFIEC guidance and how it impacts their banking customers. Among the topics he will discuss:

  • Risk assessments and layered security - what they mean to banking institutions in the context of the guidance;
  • Strategies for protecting online banking customers - commercial and consumer;
  • Emerging challenges such as mobile banking;
  • How you can help your banking customers prepare for 2012 regulatory exams.
