- CSI honored for the fourth consecutive year by BankNews’ readers -

PADUCAH, Ky., Nov. 9, 2015 – Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end financial technology solutions, today announced its Cybersecurity Risk Assessment service has been recognized as Best Consulting/Outsourcing/Training Solution in the 2015 BankNews Innovative Solutions Awards. The Innovative Solutions Awards recognize companies that have introduced or significantly enhanced products that help community banks increase efficiency, expand their capabilities and, ultimately, better serve their customers.

A comprehensive risk management solution, CSI’s Cybersercurity Risk Assessment helps organizations gauge the level of risk associated with their cyber presence, identify and evaluate existing cybersecurity controls, and assess the need for additional security measures. As part of the service, CSI’s risk and compliance experts perform a thorough review of each applicable system and provide a report, which contains values and scores from each step of the assessment process, giving institutions a clearer picture of where they should make adjustments to further reduce risks. By leveraging CSI’s Cybersecurity Risk Assessment, financial institutions can strengthen security and compliance–regardless of new threats and evolving risks–by focusing on appropriate risk mitigation strategies.

“As cyberattacks and system compromises continue to pose serious threats to all businesses, improving capabilities to combat cybercrime has become a top priority for financial institutions,” said Paul Koziarz, president of CSI Regulatory Compliance. “Our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment gives bankers a valuable tool for safeguarding the integrity of their systems, and our consistent recognition by BankNews’ readers attests to our dedicated efforts in protecting financial institutions’ reputations.”    

Each year, BankNews recognizes one winner in each of the award’s four categories, which include Best Equipment/Hardware Solution, Best Management/Operations/Processing Solution, Best Consulting/Training/Outsourcing Solution and Best eBanking Solution. Based on votes cast by readers via, the four winners were selected and are featured in the November print issue of BankNews
