As a global member-owned cooperative and the world’s leading provider of secure financial messaging services, SWIFT is proud of its community focus on driving security and efficiency.
Our messaging platform, products and services connect more than 11,000 banking institutions, securities organisations, market infrastructures and corporate customers in more than 200 countries and territories, enabling them to communicate securely and exchange standardised financial messages in a reliable way. As their trusted provider, we facilitate global and local financial flows, support trade and commerce all around the world; we relentlessly pursue operational excellence and continually seek ways to lower costs, reduce risks and eliminate operational inefficiencies.
Our community approach allows us to best address our users’ needs and to develop shared solutions and harmonised industry-wide approaches. As an example of this in May 2016, SWIFT announced a new Customer Security Programme – a focused effort to help customers reinforce the security of their SWIFT-related infrastructure against cyber threats.
