IT Security Challenges for Community Banks – Part 2: The Building Blocks of a Strong Information Security Program

Cyber security is a growing threat to community banks. Session 1 introduces the threats we face in today’s environment. Session 2 will help you build a framework and safeguards that can be applied to any new or existing challenge.

Banks are required to develop and implement a comprehensive written information security program which defines administrative, technical and physical safeguards, appropriate given the size and complexity of a bank’s operations. This presentation will take you through the steps in building a program that is right for your bank and meets regulatory requirements. Upon completion, you will be armed with a blueprint that you can use to protect sensitive customer and financial information.


  • Applicable laws and regulations
  • Information security guidance
  • Available security frameworks
  • Build your own framework
  • Non-negotiable components
  • Suggestions to successfully implement the framework


Any employee responsible for advising, managing, or reviewing the information security program will obtain the greatest value from the discussion, including: risk managers, ISOs, IT committee members, auditors and security officers.
