Cybersecurity Awareness Month — Industry Webinar
President Obama designated October as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month to raise awareness of both threats to the technologies that have become part of our everyday lives and the need to proactively defend our digital landscape. In recognition of this important designation, the FFIEC will host the webinar Getting the Most Out of Your FS-ISAC Membership for financial institutions on October 31, 2016, at 1 p.m. EDT.
Statement of Applicability to Institutions with Total Assets under $1 billion: This Financial Institution Letter applies to all FDIC-supervised institutions.
Getting the Most Out of Your FS-ISAC Membership, October 31, 2016, 1 p.m. Eastern. On Nov. 3, 2014, the FFIEC members issued a statement on Cybersecurity Threat and Vulnerability Monitoring and Sharing that encouraged financial institutions to join the Financial Services-Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC). Many financial institutions have expressed a desire to gain a better understanding on how to filter and utilize the information they receive through this membership service. This webinar will feature a guest speaker from the FS-ISAC who will provide tips on how to manage the information flow and filter information through the membership portal.
