SWIFT plays a vital role in supporting the daily operations of our users, and it is critical that we meet all our security, technical infrastructure and operational objectives at all times. At SWIFT, we are committed to providing solutions that meet our clients’ security requirements. As part of this commitment SWIFT makes available ISAE 3000 reports for the SWIFTNet, FIN and Lite2 services.
SWIFTNet and FIN ISAE 3000 Report
We are pleased to announce that SWIFT has completed its 13th independent security review of the internal control policies, procedures, and controls supporting the SWIFTNet and FIN messaging services and has received an unqualified opinion from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), covering the 2019 calendar year.
PwC’s opinion on SWIFT’s security for FIN and SWIFTNet is included in the 2019 ISAE 3000 report. ISAE 3000 is an international standard enabling service providers, such as SWIFT, to give independent assurance on their processes and controls to their customers and their auditors. The ISAE 3000 report provides information and assurance on the security and reliability of SWIFT’s core messaging services. The document is aligned with CPMI-IOSCO’s "Oversight expectations applicable to critical service providers" and the related assessment framework.
Alliance Lite2 ISAE 3000 Report
As of 2016, SWIFT also provides a third-party assurance report (under the same standard and using the same framework) for Alliance Lite2. This report has received an unqualified opinion from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), covering the 2019 calendar year.
Interface Products ISAE 3000 Report
As of 2018, SWIFT also provides a third-party assurance report (under the same standard and using the same framework) for Interface Products. This report has received an unqualified opinion from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), covering the 2019 calendar year.
