FS-ISAC Plans Cyber Exercise
May 5th, 2017
The Financial Services-Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) is planning a Cyber-Attack Against Payment Systems exercise session twice in September. Regulated financial institutions in North America can participate at no cost in sessions on September 12-13 or September 19-20.
The “tabletop” exercise simulates an attack on payment systems and processes. The purpose of the exercise is to enable an organization to assess its processes, plans and resources developed to respond to a “cyber” breach. In addition, participants will receive insights on “best practices” to reduce the risk of a security breach.
Membership in FS-ISAC is not required to participate in the exercise. FS-ISAC has separate Web sites for information about the exercise and to register for a two-day session. Financial institutions with questions about the exercise should send an e-mail to CAPS-NA@fsisac.com or call Susan Helling at 877-612-2622, extension 557.
