SWIFT Customer Security Controls Framework Compliance
Thales can help your organization comply with the SWIFT CSC Framework
As reported by Investopedia, SWIFT, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications, is a messaging network that financial institutions use to securely transmit information and instructions through a standardized system of codes.
According to SWIFT1:
The SWIFT Customer Security Controls Framework describes a set of mandatory and advisory security controls for SWIFT users.
Mandatory security controls establish a security baseline for the entire community, and must be implemented by all users on their local SWIFT infrastructure. SWIFT has chosen to prioritize these mandatory controls to set a realistic goal for near-term, tangible security gain and risk reduction.
Advisory controls are based on good practice that SWIFT recommends users to implement. Over time, mandatory controls may change due to the evolving threat landscape, and some advisory controls may become mandatory.
All controls are articulated around three overarching objectives:
1. Secure your Environment
2. Know and Limit Access
3. Detect and Respond
Thales can help you comply with all three objectives.
Thales can help you comply with the following sections of the CSC Framework:
Section 1.2. “Operating System Privileged Account Control”
Section 5. “Manage Identities and Segregate Privileges”
Section 6. “Detect Anomalous Activity to Systems or Transaction Records”
The first step in protecting sensitive data is finding the data wherever it is in the organization, classifying it as sensitive, and typing it (e.g. PII, financial, IP, HHI, customer-confidential, etc.), so you can apply the most appropriate data protection techniques. It is also important to monitor and assess data regularly to ensure new data isn’t overlooked and your organization does not fall out of compliance.
Thales’ CipherTrust Data Discovery and Classification efficiently identifies structured as well as unstructured sensitive data on-premises and in the cloud. Supporting both agentless and agent-based deployment models, the solution provides built-in templates that enable rapid identification of regulated data, highlight security risks, and help you uncover compliance gaps. A streamlined workflow exposes security blind spots and reduces remediation time. Detailed reporting supports compliance programs and facilitates executive communication.
Thales Access Management and Authentication solutions provide both the security mechanisms and reporting capabilities organizations need to comply with data security regulations. Our solutions protect sensitive data by enforcing the appropriate access controls when users log into applications that store sensitive data. By supporting a broad range of authentication methods and policy driven role-based access, our solutions help enterprises mitigate the risk of data breach due to compromised or stolen credentials or through insider credential abuse.
Support for smart single sign on and step-up authentication allows organizations to optimize convenience for end users, ensuring they only need to authenticate when needed. Extensive reporting allows businesses to produce a detailed audit trail of all access and authentication events, so they can prove compliance with a broad range of regulations.
The CipherTrust Data Security Platform is an integrated suite of data-centric security products and solutions that unify data discovery, protection, control, and access monitoring in one platform.
Thales High Speed Encryptors (HSEs) provide network independent data-in-motion encryption (Layers 2, 3, and 4) ensuring data is secure as it moves from site-to-site, or from on-premises to the cloud and back. Our HSE solutions allow customers to better protect data, video, voice, and metadata from eavesdropping, surveillance, and overt and covert interception—all at an affordable cost and without performance compromise.
