Hacker Hour


Hacker Hour: Beyond Baseline: Revisiting the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool
Description: It's hard to believe that the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT) has been around for seven years already. Since its release in the summer of 2015, the tool has seen one major update and many questions about its value. 

Join SBS as we revisit how you can get the most out of your FFIEC CAT data and discuss the most common missed questions that prevent organizations from moving from baseline to evolving maturity.
