SWIFT
Protection

SWIFT provides a secure and standardized network for financial institutions to exchange information about transactions globally. They have introduced the Customer Security Programme (CSP) to combat cyber fraud, which includes the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF) to enhance security.

SWIFT (The Society of Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) provide a network that enables financial institutions worldwide to send and receive information about financial transactions in a secure, standardised and reliable environment. SWIFT have developed a framework and standard for all organisations to conform to.

While customers of SWIFT are responsible for protecting their own environments and access to SWIFT, the Customer Security Programme (CSP) has been introduced by SWIFT to support customers and drive industry-wide collaboration in the fight against cyber fraud. The CSP established a common set of security controls known as the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF) which is designed to help customers to secure their local environments and support a more secure financial ecosystem.

As of mid-2020 SWIFT users are obligated to perform a ‘Community-Standard Assessment’, and mandate that all attestations submitted under CSCF must be independently assessed.

Kyte is the first Maltese company to have been registered as a CSP Assessor. Additionally, combined with experience and expertise as PCI QSAs, Kyte can guide organisations in conforming to the requirements and controls in the SWIFT standards.
