SWIFT Assessment Security Services

What is SWIFT?

Founded in 1973, SWIFT, or the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications, is a cooperative organization connecting more than 11,000 banks, financial institutions and corporations in more than 200 countries and territories. It is dedicated to the promotion and development of standardized global interactivity for financial transactions. In 2017, SWIFT launched its Customer Security Program (CSP) in an effort to reinforce the security of the global financial system, supporting customers in their fight against cyber-fraud.

All SWIFT users are expected to assess their SWIFT local environment against the SWIFT Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF). After this self-assessment, users must then attest to complying with the CSCF on an annual basis.

As of January 2018, SWIFT is strictly enforcing the CSCF via inspections, reporting non-compliant businesses to their local supervisors. Although SWIFT itself cannot impose sanctions on businesses, banks worldwide have been diligent in fining and otherwise penalizing lenders for various forms on SWIFT noncompliance.

SWIFT Customer Security Program (CSP)

The SWIFT Customer Security Program (CSP) aims to improve information sharing through the banking community, enhances SWIFT-related tools for customers, and provides a customer security control framework. The CSP helps users first in protecting and securing their local environment, next in preventing and detecting fraud in their commercial relationships, and then in continuously sharing information and preparing to defend against future cyber threats.

SWIFT publishes its updated version of the CSCF each July. The document includes any modifications to the framework controls and should be consulted to help plan and budget for the next year. CSCF v2021 is comprised of 22 mandatory and 9 advisory controls.
