Information Security

Information security is a critical part of internally and externally developed software. Financial institutions should consider information security requirements and incorporate automated controls into internally developed programs, or ensure the controls are incorporated into acquired software, before the software is implemented. For additional details, please refer to the IT Handbook's "Information Security Booklet" and additional industry standards such as Security Considerations in the Information System Development Life Cycle published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
