BATON ROUGE, La., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TraceSecurity, a leader in cloud-based cybersecurity solutions, today announced availability of its Cybersecurity Assessment Tool for financial institutions. The application is designed to help financial institutions complete the complex FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment. Developed directly from the FFIEC guidance, the TraceSecurity Cybersecurity Assessment Tool provides a step-by-step process for evaluating overall inherent risk and cybersecurity maturity.
The tool is available at no cost to financial institutions. Once the initial assessment is completed, financial institutions may continue to access the tool, enabling them to maintain and edit their assessment year-over-year. Additionally, the tool automatically generates detailed reports that illustrate a financial institution's overall inherent risk level and cybersecurity maturity levels.
To assist financial institutions with utilization of the tool, TraceSecurity offers cybersecurity assessment services that include, but are not limited to, assistance with data collection and results analysis.
"TraceSecurity's Cybersecurity Assessment Tool makes it easy for financial institutions to comply with evolving regulatory guidelines that can be complex in nature," said Peter Stewart, TraceSecurity CEO. "With the launch of this new tool, the company continues to enable financial institutions to be proactive and strategic within their information security management – empowering them to combat against increasing cybersecurity risks."
TraceSecurity will present a complimentary webinar, "Evaluate Your Cybersecurity Preparedness with TraceSecurity's Cybersecurity Assessment Tool" on Thursday, May 12 at 1pm CDT.
