It seems the banking industry is always on the forefront of technological innovation -- from mobile banking applications to digital wallet services, web-based services, chat bots, and wireless transactions – not to mention the technology they use for their own internal operations. These services provide many benefits to consumers and banks, but they also pose the potential for significant and persistent risks.

As an Information Technology and Cyber Risk Management Analyst for the FDIC, you will help the agency actively monitor cybersecurity risks in the banking industry. Here are a few ways our analysts apply their skills:

  • Participate in examinations to ensure that financial institutions and service providers of client banks are appropriately managing their exposure to cybersecurity risk;
  • Verify that bank management has considered how cyber events could disrupt their operations and has designed resilience into their operations; and
  • Identify irregularities, weaknesses, and deficiencies, and evaluate bank management’s ability and willingness to correct those issues.
  • We now live in a world of ever-increasing cybersecurity risks. In the banking system, the consequences of not controlling that risk can be severe, spreading globally by the minute or the second. Join the FDIC as an Information Technology and Cyber Risk Management Analyst and protect our nation’s financial system from cyber threats.

    In addition to exposure to the latest in financial technology, the FDIC offers a competitive salary, a generous benefits package, and much more.

    Generous compensation The FDIC offers highly competitive pay that often exceeds what is offered by private sector and other government agencies.
    Comprehensive benefits FDIC employees receive benefits that include health, life, and dental insurance; paid vacation time; flexible spending accounts; and retirement benefits, including 401(k) savings accounts and enrollment in the Federal Employee Retirement System. The FDIC also offers generous retirement contribution matching.
    Travel Analysts’ responsibilities may take them to institutions across the country, meeting new people, and undertaking important new challenges.
    Work/Life balance The FDIC offers reasonable work hours, flexible work schedules, and telework opportunities to help employees lead a fulfilling life outside of work.
    Commitment to diversity The FDIC prides itself on an inclusive work environment that recognizes and appreciates all employees’ perspectives and talents, allows employees opportunities to reach their highest potential, and attracts and retains the most talented employees.
