Description: On May 31, 2017, the FFIEC released an update to the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT). This update addresses changes to the FFIEC IT Examination Handbook by providing a revised mapping in Appendix A to the updated Information Security and Management booklets. The updated Assessment will also provide additional response options, allowing the inclusion of supplementary or complementary behaviors, practices, and processes that represent current practices of the institution in support of its cybersecurity activity.

This webinar will overview the following details:

  • Current CAT Process
  • Step by step review of changes
  • Next steps with CAT


The Assessment was developed to help financial institution management determine the institution’s risk profile, inherent risks, and cybersecurity preparedness. The Assessment provides a repeatable and measurable process that financial institution management may use to measure cybersecurity preparedness over time.


This webinar is done in partnership with GSB

Hacker Hour webinars are a series of free webinars hosted by SBS CyberSecurity. Unlike paid webinars, Hacker Hours are aimed to meet on a monthly basis to discuss cybersecurity issues and trends in an open format. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and get their questions answered. SBS will also offer products and services to help financial institutions with these specific issues.
