Safe Systems Offers New White Paper: “Strengthen Your Strategy: Why a Layered Defense is the Best Choice for Your Bank’s IT Security Program”

Alpharetta, Ga., April 6, 2017 – Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions, has published a free white paper, “Strengthen Your Strategy: Why a Layered Defense is the Best Choice for Your Bank’s IT Security Program,” which is now available for download on its website.

The new white paper offers key reasons why community banks should invest in layered security and provides guidance on how banks can best protect their networks to keep customer information safe. In the current risk environment, financial institutions are challenged by denial of service attacks, ransomware, and other cybersecurity incidents, proving that a single layer of security is not enough to keep sensitive, financial data secure. Safe Systems’ white paper addresses why a single-focused solution is not enough for community banks today and what they should be looking for when implementing a layered approach.

“Having more than one security layer is essential in combatting fraudulent activities as cybercrimes become more complex,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. ”In an effort to help community banks build the best IT security strategy for their institutions, our new white paper helps them identify the different types of security controls they need in place to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and protect their institutions from malicious attacks.”
