Enhancing Cyber Security and Resiliency Through Standardization

The Cyber Risk Institute (CRI) is working to protect the global economy by enhancing cyber security and resiliency through standardization. As a not-for-profit coalition of financial institutions and trade associations, we house and maintain the Financial Services Cybersecurity Profile (“the Profile”)  — the benchmark for cybersecurity and resiliency in the financial services industry. This ever-evolving and concise list of assessment questions is curated based on the intersection of global regulations and cyber standards, such as ISO and NIST.

This profile is provided at no cost to the entire industry, and CRI is led by its membership – which represents the range of financial institutions. Do your part to strengthen your organization and improve the security of the financial system.

When we work together, everyone wins

Cybersecurity is complex; evidencing compliance shouldn't be. Together, we are highlighting systemic and firm-specific risk, while reducing the disproportionate amount of time spent on compliance.
Meeting regulatory demands with consistency is incredibly difficult. For the first time, the industry is coming together to solve the problem.
– Cybersecurity Director / Tier 1 Institution
It’s our senior talent who meets with regulators—those are the same people driving information security strategy. It’s a high percentage of executive time.
– Chief Counsel / Tier 2 Institution
The threat is such an existential level, it’s so wide-reaching, everyone knows we all have to work together to be effective.
– CISO / Tier 2 Institution

A Better Tool for Compliance

Produced through public-private collaboration, the Profile is an industry-backed, consolidated approach to assessing cyber security, resilience, and efficacy.
