FFIEC Compliance Auditors, Consultants, Assessments
FFIEC Compliance Experts
NDB's experienced FFIEC compliance auditors and compliance consultants can assist with all your FFIEC needs, from implementing numerous I.T. and operational controls as required by law, to developing documented FFIEC policies and procedures. FFIEC, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), was established in 1979 and is a formal interagency body empowered to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms for the federal examination of financial institutions by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
Moreover, FFIEC makes recommendations to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions and is responsible for developing uniform reporting systems for federally supervised financial institutions, their holding companies, along with also affiliated subsidiaries, when and where applicable.
FFIEC Infobase Resources
FFIEC has what is known as "InfoBase" (http://ithandbook.ffiec.gov/), a set of resources that provide information related to the following subject matter:
- I.T. Booklets
- Referenced Materials
Not only is the "InfoBase" resource portal a great way to learn more about the FFIEC, it is also used by many organizations (especially the I.T. Booklets) as a way for staying on top of the many federally mandated compliance requirements for financial institutions. Though a fair amount of the subjects within the I.T. Booklets were published in years past, they are still considered a vital, "must have" resource for many entities, and as such, NDB provides a wide range of services relating to FFIEC, and the implementation of many of the required procedures within these I.T. Booklets themselves.
As for the I.T. Booklets, they can be found at http://ithandbook.ffiec.gov/it-booklets.aspx and consist of the following areas:
- Business Continuity Planning
- Development and Acquisition
- Information Security
- Outsourcing Technology Services
- Retail Payment Systems
- Supervision of Technology Service Providers
- Wholesale Payment Systems
