In my previous blog I briefly explained the new SWIFT regulations framework that will come into force on January 1st, 2018. In this blog I will focus on what is required to meet the first SWIFT requirement: “Restrict Internet Access & Protect Critical Systems from General IT Environment”. I will also explain how GuardiCore can help in complying with these requirements faster, simpler and in a more robust and maintainable way.

In March 2017 SWIFT published its new Customer Security Controls Framework to the community. This is the first time SWIFT is publishing such security guidance and they announced that they will start auditing compliance with those requirements from January 2018, leaving SWIFT users (roughly any financial institution in the world) only a few months to take action. Organizations that are are found to be non-compliant will be published in a specific directory letting all other users of SWIFT to know that this counterpart maybe not safe to do business with. In practice this means that any respectable financial institution will have to do the effort to comply with the new regulations.

The way businesses and IT teams are executing today has dramatically changed and will only continue to do so. More and more organizations are embracing DevOps, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and application-centric practices. The goal of these changes is to enable IT teams to dramatically accelerate and more effectively adapt and respond to their organization’s business needs.
