As part of their increased focus on cybersecurity, the CFPB and federal banking are taking steps to raise financial institutions’ awareness about the need for preparedness. On June 24, 2014, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) launched a web page that combines available resources from the federal regulators on cybersecurity.

In addition to heightening institutions’ awareness of cybersecurity risks, the web page is intended to create a repository of prior FFIEC cybersecurity documents and guidance. The web page was established in conjunction with the CFPB, the Fed, the FDIC, the NCUA and the OCC.
