Cyber Security Training for Board of Directors 

With cyber security training from CSI, you can educate your board of directors to ensure that they have access to accurate, timely and relevant industry information in the areas of cybersecurity and IT governance. 

Cyber security in the banking industry is more important than ever. When the FDIC released updates to the FFIEC Management Booklet of the IT Handbook in 2015, it introduced a number of new obligations for financial institutions’ boards of directors. Specifically, your board is now required to remain actively engaged in, and fully govern, IT Management and IT governance training. 

Cyber Security and Your Board of Directors 

CSI Cybersecurity Awareness training is tailored to your board and financial institution, and provides a hands-on opportunity for discussion and questions. And whether you prefer online training for bank boards or in-person training, CSI’s team of industry experts will conduct an interactive exercise to cover FFIEC compliance and the five general awareness topics related to cybersecurity preparedness, including:

  1. Risk Management and Oversight
  2. Threat Intelligence and Collaboration
  3. Cybersecurity Controls
  4. External Dependency Management
  5. Cyber-Incident Management and Resilience

Our cybersecurity training will help you build the foundation your board needs to maintain a vigilant cyber security compliance program, make informed decisions and stay competitive in the industry.

BCP Tabletop Testing

Whether for business continuity planning (BCP) or cybersecurity incident response, CSI Regulatory Compliance offers tabletop testing services to help your organization gauge its level of preparedness for disaster recovery.  

Our consultants work with members of your staff to test the recovery plans you’ve created by:  

  • Developing a test scenario for your unique institution  
  • Facilitating a tabletop discussion with your staff to role-play the emergency scenario and determine the strength of your incident response plan 
  • Providing a detailed report of our observations and the tabletop test results
  • Suggesting recovery plan enhancements and recommendations for identified weaknesses

Incident response and business continuity exercises like these should be tested at least once per year, using varied methods. CSI’s experienced consultants can be part of that regimen. Using tabletop testing, we can help you identify and remediate gaps or shortcomings and make improvements to your BCP or incident response plan.
