FFIEC Compliance and Cybersecurity | AlienVault

Accelerate FFIEC Compliance

AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM) delivers a single platform to help you manage your bank and credit union network security for FFIEC compliance.

Identify risk, respond to threats, and demonstrate FFIEC compliance

Bank and credit union network security teams frequently struggle to achieve FFIEC (Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council) compliance. They often lack the resources to deploy and manage a diverse set of security controls that would enable them to identify risk, respond to threats and demonstrate compliance.

Smaller banks and credit unions need to be able to correlate and analyze a tremendous amount of data about their network. Only then can they analyze the potential threats to their network, and prioritize and respond to those risks.

AlienVault’s USM platform delivers everything you need for complete visibility of your assets, vulnerabilities, and threats–all in one easy-to-use console. The built-in security controls and integrated threat intelligence accelerate and simplify the steps needed to demonstrate FFIEC compliance.

In as little as one hour, you can be correlating data from across your network to identify and prioritize the most important risks. Additionally, you can use AlienVault’s integrated threat intelligence to help you respond quickly and effectively.

USM delivers the bank and credit union cyber security you need in three key areas:

Bank Network Security Monitoring

  • Deploy essential, built-in security capabilities quickly, for network-wide visibility
  • Monitor host and network conditions to reduce risk
  • Continuous correlation and analysis of your network activity identifies suspicious and malicious activity quickly

Information Security Risk Assessment

  • Detect new assets and vulnerable systems before attackers can target them
  • Identify previously unknown connections to prevent data loss
  • Focus limited resources on those critical assets to minimize the risk of system compromise and data exfiltration

Integrated Threat Intelligence

  • Ensures your security controls are up-to-date with continuous updates
  • Eliminates the need to create your own correlation directives to detect threats
  • Extends expertise of your IT team by providing the research and analysis of the threat landscape

Bank Network Security Monitoring

AlienVault’s USM platform provides a unified approach to bank network security monitoring, threat detection and compliance management that gives you the visibility you need from a single console for FFIEC compliance. The USM platform includes five essential security capabilities, all centrally managed through a single interface:

  • Asset Discovery
  • Vulnerability Assessment
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Behavioral Monitoring
  • SIEM (Security Information and Event Management)

These built-in, essential security controls and threat intelligence eliminate the need to deploy separate security point products and conduct independent threat research.

With correlation of security events from built-in vulnerability assessments, IDS, file-integrity monitoring (FIM), and service availability monitoring, AlienVault USM brings together the key data needed for effective incident detection, alerting and response. You can also integrate data from third party tools via our extensive plugin library to increase visibility and preserve the value of your investments.

The AlienVault USM platform enables you to quickly answer critical questions about your security posture for FFIEC cybersecurity monitoring purposes, such as what devices are on your network, which assets are vulnerable to attack, and if any of your devices are communicating with known malicious IP addresses. AlienVault USM will also automatically alert you when there is malicious activity in your network, when unauthorized USB devices are attached to network assets, and when your users are violating policies.

Information Security Risk Assessment

AlienVault USM provides a consolidated, single-screen view of all network activity to help you understand your FFIEC information security posture. This centralized view includes the ability to identify vulnerable systems for remediation and pinpoint connections to validate their purpose to take corrective actions.

With the asset discovery and vulnerability assessment capabilities built into the AlienVault USM platform, you can perform authenticated or unauthenticated scans to identify and prioritize vulnerability remediation. Your IT team can then take appropriate action to remediate your organization’s greatest vulnerability risk and validate its success.

You can also use USM to perform a baseline for further assessments to identify new, previously unknown connections. The USM platform will pinpoint the connections and their protocols to help you adhere to FFIEC compliance mandates such as identifying insecure connections that are not allowed and require strict TLS/SSL or SSH for secure data transfer.

Actionable Threat Intelligence Delivered Directly to You

Most teams don’t have unlimited resources to research the latest threats in the wild. That’s why the AlienVault Labs Security Research Team works on your behalf to scour the global threat landscape for emerging latest attack methods, bad actors, and vulnerabilities that could impact your security. This team analyzes hundreds of thousands of threat indicators daily and delivers continuous threat intelligence updates automatically to your USM environment, in the form of actionable IDS signatures, correlation rules, remediation guidance, and more. With this integrated threat intelligence subscription, you always have the most up-to-date threat intelligence as you monitor your environment for emerging threat.

To provide deeper and wider insight into attack trends and bad actors, the AlienVault Labs Security Research Team leverages the power of the Open Threat Exchange® (OTX™)—the world’s first truly open threat intelligence community. This community of security researchers and IT professionals collaborate and share millions of threat artifacts as they emerge “in the wild,” so you get global insight into attack trends and bad actors that could impact your operations.
