FFIEC Compliance

Beyond Meeting Requirements

The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) is a body that provides uniform principles and standards for federal examination of financial institutions.

FFIEC calls for quarterly review of firewall policy that includes rules and policy audit or review. CyanLine offers a cost effective, in-depth firewall analysis package that denotes significant network additions, or modifications in accordance with NIST, PCI, and HIPPA/HITECH.

CyanLine’s regulatory compliance experts perform a firewall audit that does the following:

  • Identify methods to reduce your vulnerabilities
  • Secure systems to ensure firewall is hardened and working properly
  • Verify rule sets and policies on ingress and egress points
  • Review the attack vectors where someone with malicious intent may attack the firewall
  • Conduct employee interviews with those who have administrative access to the firewall

What Security Precautions Are Taken To Protect My Files?

CyanLine is first and foremost a very respected cybersecurity company that has been in business since 2004. We take the confidentiality and privacy of your information very seriously. There are numerous steps CyanLine has taken to protect the integrity of your files.
