As crime continues to pay and fraud attempts increase, SWIFT has released its Customer Security Programme (CSP) to harden the endpoints of the SWIFT network. Launched on May 27th, 2016, SWIFT CSP supports all customer segments, whether directly or indirectly connected, in reinforcing the security of their SWIFT-related infrastructure. There are 27 controls, 16 of which are mandatory. 11 are advisory.
Everyone with a SWIFT BIC must evaluate their environment and attest by December 31, 2017, to be in compliance. SWIFT users must always conduct their own analysis of the suitability of a Cyber Security Service Provider for their purposes. Worried about doing this on your own? Strategic Treasurer can help guide you through this process.
SWIFT CSP is articulated around three mutually reinforcing areas:
Secure & Protect
Share & Prepare
Prevent & Detect
DON'T FORGETYour attestation is due December 31, 2017!
Each of these webinars will go into more detail about SWIFT CSP and what you need to know. Following the webinars, there will be a replay available for more information.
