Helping customers strengthen their cyber defences

Swift’s Customer Security Programme (CSP) helps financial institutions ensure their defences against cyberattacks are up to date and effective, to protect the integrity of the wider financial network. Users compare the security measures they have implemented with those detailed in the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF), before attesting their level of compliance annually.

With solid attestation and compliance rates, the CSP reflects a community of highly engaged users committed to stopping cyberattacks in their tracks. And, as the cyber threat landscape evolves, so too does the CSP.

Effective each year as from July, Swift issues an updated version of the CSCF and you need to support your attestation with an independent assessment.

As this is an assessment and not a full audit, it is not as expensive and takes less time, the magnitude of the task is reduced. The assessment can be conducted by internal teams such as the Compliance Office, Risk Office or Internal Audit. The deadline for attestation, and independent assessment, is 31 December.
