SWIFT Customer Security Programme with
Ekran System

A single flexible software platform to empower your compliance

WHAT IS SWIFT CUSTOMER SECURITY PROGRAMME

rounds

The SWIFT Customer Security Programme (CSP) was started in 2017 and updated in 2019. The SWIFT CSP obliges any financial organization that uses SWIFT services to fully comply with 19 mandatory security controls by the beginning of 2020 and to take all reasonable efforts to meet 10 advisory security controls that together comprise the SWIFT Customer Security Controls Framework.

This framework translates industry security best practices and guidelines into three key objectives:

  • Secure your environment
  • Know and limit access
  • Detect and respond

To meet SWIFT security requirements, companies need to:

  • Audit their current infrastructure to define specific requirements and limitations
  • Evaluate deployed security products and policies against mandatory controls
  • Develop a policy update plan to ensure compliance while relying on existing tools
  • Consider deploying specific software that meets both mandatory and advisory controls

The Ekran System® insider threat protection platform is your powerful ally in adopting SWIFT Customer Security Controls.

  • Servers, jump servers, and desktops
  • Virtual and physical infrastructures
  • Any network architecture and hybrids
  • All essential features combined
