Make sure you are ready for your next examination with the Weekly IT Security Checklist.  Designed by a former IT examiner, this educational tool provides a weekly list of action items related to information systems security issues, and can help ensure that your IT operation is: 

-          Compliant with applicable regulations;

-          Adheres to proper (best practices) procedures;

-          Provides a safe and sound IT environment for your organization,

-          Provides a safe and secure IT operation for your customers.

-         Continuous monitoring of the IT security operations.

The Checklist follows the Information Security booklet outlined in the FFIEC Information Technology Examination Handbook used by the FDIC, OCC, FRB, NCUA, and most state banking agencies.  The best practices security guidelines in the Information Security booklet are applicable to any business that uses computers including banks, credit unions, hospitals, governments, military, computer technicians, etc.

For financial institutions, GLBA requires the institutions to “Regularly test the key controls, systems and procedures of the information security program.”  (FDIC Appendix B to Part 364) and (OCC Appendix B to 12 CFR 30).  The IT Security Checklist helps you meet the “regularly testing” requirement of the FFIEC interagency statement spending less than 5 minutes a week.  This is also is true for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Handbook.

The Checklist provides the network administrator with a comprehensive list of information systems' security issues, and instructions on how to deal with them.  Just a few minutes each week spent analyzing a security issue and, over time, your organization’s IT security operations are ready for an audit.  The checklist is also used by IT security officers, chief information officers, senior management, and auditors.

In less than 5 minutes a week along with a cup of coffee, be ready for the IT auditors/examiners - order the Checklist today.  In addition, the weekly Checklist is a great educational tool for those employees involved in the IT operations.

Get all the IT Security news, too.

In addition and at no extra cost, non-financial institutions will receive the Internet IT Security News.  This is a weekly newsletter that covers IT security (National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Handbook) and includes links to this week's newsworthy IT security articles.  This is a $520 value that you will receive at no additional charge.
