Cyber Risk In Banking & Finance

Banks and financial institutions thrive in a regulated environment and answer to a host of stakeholders.  Cybersecurity for banks and financial institutions ought to be provided by a firm which understands the regulatory environment, unique threats and needs of this sector. 

A tailored credit union package will soon be available.

Cybersecurity risk, cyber risk insurance*, and a risk management plan which satisfies outside legal counsel and the organization’s board of directors is exactly what the TripleHelix® family of cyber risk assessments provide to institutions of all sizes. 

AssuredOne™ - 360° Cyber Risk Protection for Banks and Financial Institutions

Many cybersecurity risks are now foreseeable and readily avoidable.  AssuredOne™ brings solid cyber risk insurance solutions together with cutting edge cyber risk assessments and complete regulatory compliance, for financial institutions.

For large institutions, a TripleHelix® cyber risk assessment provides  

  1. visibility into the gaps, risks and vulnerabilities in the organization’s systems today

  3. a CyberScore® designed to assist the Board in understanding their responsibilities in managing cyber risk and
  4. a full complement of regulatory compliance reporting, often provided with a minimum of internal disruption.

Innovative Cybersecurity and Cyber Insurance for Everyday Financial Provider

Banks and most financial institutions are federally regulated by one or more regulators: the Federal Reserve Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the FDIC, the SEC, the CFTC, the CFPB or the National Credit Union Association (NCUA) specifically for credit unions.  Then, there are the state regulatory requirements.  Each regulator may mandate its own cybersecurity compliance regimen.

Need a regulatory compliance report you don’t see? Just ask – Assured Enterprises will integrate any regulatory compliance report at no cost. 

Financial institutions must meet the requirements of the regulators, but savvy boards of directors know that “compliance does not equal security.”  For this reason, TripleHelix® and its progeny, Cyber Health Essentials Checkup™ and Cyber Pro Maturity™, are tailored to the security needs of institutions of all sizes and threat profiles.

Visibility into cyber risk, a plan to mitigate the risk, a threat analysis to inform decision-makers and the choices for managing risk, a CyberScore® to measure the risk and to serve as a benchmark for future comparison and a complete regimen for satisfying regulatory compliance—whether governmental, best international practices, specific purpose compliance or internal compliance is available, too.

Combined with innovative cyber risk insurance, even the smallest financial institution can begin to address, to mitigate and to manage its cybersecurity risk and provide adequate insurance to protect its stakeholders
