Developing Your Information Security Program

If you created your program according to regulations alone, you likely left out several useful methods for safeguarding information. This program addresses the most effective methodologies for creating your Information Security Program.

Financial institutions are obligated, by regulations and contemporary business ethics, to safeguard the information that pertains to their customers’ (or members’) privacy and financial histories. Institutions are also required to protect certain non-customer confidential information that they have lawfully acquired. This process often requires the institution to balance the access to privileged information with the needs of:

  • Its customers (e.g., account statements and safe deposit box history);
  • Its institution-affiliated parties (e.g., performance reviews and background investigations);
  • Its non-institution-affiliated parties (e.g., contracts and references);
  • Law enforcement and regulatory agencies (e.g., subpoenas and search warrants); and
  • Legal processes (e.g., tax seizures and civil actions).


  • What the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act’s Interagency Guidelines require for customer and other information safeguards
  • How to conduct an effective information security risk assessment — and then develop the required Risk Management Plan
  • Why conducting initial and continuing screening of job applicants, institution-affiliated parties and non-institution-affiliated parties should become a routine business practice, and who should be screened
  • What commercially reasonable and effective information security measures are available
  • How to develop information categories and types of information that should be protected
  • Why your institution’s Code Of Conduct statement is an excellent information security tool
