The Security Catalyst is conducting a study of the Financial Industry perspectives regarding the FFIEC mandate for stronger authentication (http://www.ffiec.gov/pdf/authentication_guidance.pdf). Given itâ€™s been six months since the guidance was issued we expect most organizations to have assessed what the guidance means for them and initial conversations indicate the impact has been significant.
We are looking at various approaches within the industry to risk assessment, interpretations of the guidance, integration issues, and lessons learned. If youâ€™re working for a financial institution and interested in participating, it takes 5-10mins and discussions are confidential, please contact the security catalyst at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will provide participants with the results of the study over the next few weeks. We will present the results at an upcoming industry meeting in June
