With the development of digital technologies, society has gained new opportunities, but at the same time new challenges and security threats. Cybercrime in the financial sector is growing, which is why SWIFT has established the Customer Security Programme (CSP). The Programme promotes cybersecurity within the SWIFT user community and to drive industry-wide collaboration in the battle against the cyber threat. According to CSP, each SWIFT user must comply with the mandatory and advisory security controls (conduct Self-Attestation) and publish the results in the KYC-Security Attestation (KYC-SA).
From 2021, all SWIFT users are obligated to perform "Community Standard Assessments" by conducting an independent assessment of Self-Attestation results. This must be achieved through either: 1) external assessment, by an independent external organisation which has existing cybersecurity assessment experience, and individual assessors who have relevant security industry certifications; or 2) internal assessment by a user’s second or third line of defence function or its functional equivalent, which is independent from the first line of defence function that submitted the attestation or its functional equivalent.
“ProFIX Company with responsibility for each customer and Customer Security Programme rules, reminds SWIFT users about new requirements and recommends expert services for independent assessment of Self-Attestation results from leading cybersecurity companies. We have held a number of meetings with representatives of international and Ukrainian companies and offer carefully selected partners who have in-depth expertise in security consulting and are included in the Directory of Assessment Providers", – said Gennady Kublanovsky, President of ProFIX Company.
