The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center will sponsor two simulated payment security exercises for banks in September. Registration for the Cyberattacks Against Payment Processors (CAPP) exercises — Sept. 9-10 and Sept. 16-17 — is now open.

Held in conjunction with the FS-ISAC’s Payments Risk Council, the CAPP exercises will consist of simulated attacks on payment processes to help participants assess their companies’ readiness. Similar exercises were conducted in 2012 and 2013.

The CAPP exercises are intended to help banks evaluate their cyber strategies and identify weaknesses, gain experience in a live test environment, adopt industry best practices and demonstrate regulatory compliance. Participants will also receive an after-action report.

The CAPP exercises are open to financial institutions that provide payment services and face cyber threats. Registrations will be carefully vetted upon submission. Participants must register by Sept. 5 for the first exercise and by Sept. 12 for the second.​
