Princeton, NJ, June 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Safeguarding information assets might sound like a task for the technical team. However, when it comes to information security breaches, your board of directors is ultimately accountable. Board members and senior management are responsible for planning and implementing an IT risk management system that works. To do so, they must understand the risks and safeguards required to govern and maintain a secure environment.
Customer confidence and trust is one key to banking success. That trust is only as secure as the IT risk management system board members and senior management decide to implement. By implementing a system that identifies, measures, manages and controls risks to data and systems, you can protect your institution’s reputation and adhere to regulatory mandates and laws. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and section 216 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act require strict administrative, technical and physical safeguards.
