Safe Systems Issues New White Paper: “Top IT Areas Where CEOs of Financial Institutions Should Focus: Important Questions and Answers”

Alpharetta, Ga., July 9, 2018Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions, has issued a new white paper, “Top IT Areas Where CEOs of Financial Institutions Should Focus: Important Questions and Answers,” now available for download on its website.

As technology continues to evolve and cyber threats increase in volume and sophistication, community banks and credit union chief executive officers (CEOs) must focus on a number of IT areas to ensure their institutions are compliant and secure. Safe Systems’ white paper addresses common questions CEOs should consider about technology, security and compliance. It outlines five key IT areas they must focus on to ensure their financial institutions are adequately prepared to recover from major cyber events. These areas include the cybersecurity assessment tool (CAT), cybersecurity, email threats/security, security layers and the cloud.

“In today’s threat landscape, cybersecurity is a constant and critical endeavor for community banks and credit unions that must be managed effectively,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. “Our new white paper provides an in-depth resource for CEOs to evaluate the key IT areas that have the most impact on their cybersecurity and resilience posture. We offer advice to ensure these institutions stay ahead of cyber threats, remain compliant and meet their core business goals.”
