FedLine Assessment Services

FedLine Assessment Services

Helping you meet the Federal Reserve Banks’ compliance standards and strengthen your FedLine controls.

Due to ever-increasing cyberattacks and recent instances of payment fraud, the Federal Reserve Banks have implemented the Security and Resiliency Assurance Program. This new program requires financial institutions to assess their compliance with FedLine security requirements.

BKD Cyber can help you comply with the FedLine assessment. Our services include an assessment and report of your current controls in place for FedLine security requirements. We also provide management a list of controls to help develop a remediation plan to address any deficiencies.

Program Requirements

As noted on the Federal Reserve website: In response to the evolving security threat landscape, the Federal Reserve Banks are implementing a Security and Resiliency Assurance Program (“Assurance Program”). As part of this new program, institutions that use the FedLine® Solutions must:

  • Conduct an assessment of their compliance with the Federal Reserve Banks’ FedLine security requirements
  • Submit an attestation that they have completed the assessment

All financial institutions are required to confirm full compliance with the mandatory security and controls (v1.0) by reconfirming before the December 31, 2021, deadline.

Our Qualifications

BKD Cyber meets the assessment qualifications as directed by the Federal Reserve. Our team has acquired the FedLine® Solutions Security and Resilience Assurance Program, FedLine® Advantage Security and Control Procedures (v1.0), and FedLine® Web Security and Control Procedures (v1.0) to help financial institutions evaluate stated controls and provide a final report for the end-user authorization contacts (EUAC) to complete their year-end attestation requirement.

Our Approach

Whether your financial institution is completing the self-assessment or required by the Federal Reserve to have an independent party complete the assessment, BKD Cyber can help you comply with the FedLine Assessment requirement through a variety of services. Our services include an evaluation and report of your financial institution’s current controls in place for FedLine security requirements and providing management a list of controls to help develop a remediation plan to address any deficiencies.
