With the added responsibility of overseeing cybersecurity, the position of Information Security Officer is quickly becoming one of the most critical roles within any financial institution. Paramount is the need to maintain the security of the institution. Added to this is the necessity to meet regulatory requirements and to stay in front of developing risks. Yet many institutions have only limited resources (in terms of both budgets and personnel) to oversee this area. AaSys Group’s Information Security Officer Support program fills this gap.
While an experienced Information Security Consultant is assigned to each client, additional AaSys Group team expertise provides full coverage for the entire range of information security required tasks. The creation of a personalized roadmap is one of the first steps in the process. The road map establishes a program focused on issues by proactively examining the financial institution’s security infrastructure and creating a plan to eliminate or mitigate issues. This roadmap is then utilized as the AaSys Group Security Consultant provides a continuous security evaluation.
AaSys Group works with the institution to establish measures of compliance based upon established frameworks including ISO 27002, the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge, FDIC section 364(b), FACTA, and NIST Security Standards.
A secured ISO Portal is created to facilitate communication, share documents, and request service.

Having advice from a seasoned banking professional who understands how to mitigate risks based upon the size and complexity of the institution is invaluable.

This gives them insight into the technical world from which many security issues evolve. Having a team of experts backing up your staff provides peace of mind that the institution is secure.
