WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the market leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "Understanding the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool" on Thursday, September 17, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) recently released the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT) to help financial institutions identify their risks and determine their cyber security preparedness. The CAT will no doubt be relied on by examiners from the OCC, FDIC and other agencies as they assess banking institutions' cyber security readiness.

Join us for an informative webinar as Jennifer Allen, infosec compliance specialist for Bit9 + Carbon Black, digs into what you need to know about the CAT. Allen will explore the key components of the tool using the inherent risk profile and the five cyber security assessment maturity domains, and highlight the key takeaways from each. She will then detail a case study based on real-world data, which compares a national bank's preparedness profile based on different technology approaches.
