  • Development of a strong vendor management program
  • Strengthening of vendor oversight policies and procedures
  • Ongoing and comprehensive assessment of third parties
  • Deeper scrutiny of Vendor SSAE 16 documents to ensure adequate control

FIS™ employs the latest technologies and methodologies to pinpoint where a system can be exploited so corrective action can be taken.

  • Compliant with the OCC’s requirements for vulnerability scanning
  • Proven precision in risk scoring and prioritization of vulnerabilities
