ONALASKA, Wis., Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --Sergeant Laboratories is pleased to continue their new information series, which highlights top issues faced by information security today. In the second initiative in this important series, Sergeant Laboratories hopes to cover understanding and streamlining the process of maintaining FFIEC technology compliance.
Although they are standard among financial institutions, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) regulations are so confusing that they frequently are not followed properly. Non-compliance largely occurs because organizations either do not understand the requirements or do not have the proper tools to assist staff members in the process of maintaining FFIEC compliance.
Maintaining FFIEC compliance is a lengthy process that requires the collection and monitoring of a large amount of data. The size of the process makes it incredibly difficult to complete manually or using a multitude of point solutions, especially if an organization's IT team is understaffed.
When asked about the matter, Eric Anderholm, Sergeant Laboratories' CEO, said, "Financial institutions are some of the most common targets for cyber criminals, but don't always have the resources to defend themselves and maintain regulatory compliance at the same time. We wanted to provide them with the tools to do both, efficiently and effectively."
It is incredibly important that financial institutions remain up to date on the requirements of regulatory compliance. Yet organizations with small IT teams face significant struggles to accomplish this -- especially in an environment of constantly evolving regulations, threats, and information security tools. Security professionals, who are overworked, need a solution that is capable of streamlining the process and presenting the information IT pros need to secure their most critical data and prove the organization's compliance with FFIEC regulations.
One way that an organization can streamline their regulatory compliance process is to use the advanced reporting capabilities of AristotleInsight.
