FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT)

The Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT) helps financial institutions identify risks and determine cybersecurity preparedness. CAT assessments provide institutions the ability to measure performance and maturity of their security program over time. This maturity-based framework provides institutions with the ability to easily demonstrate security program improvements year over year, which is of particular interest during examinations and audits.

Security risk assessments quickly help identify the security gaps by using remediation actions and prioritize preemptive measures to strengthen your environments.
