Customer Security Controls Framework

Learn more about Customer Security Controls and the Independent Assessment Framework


In July 2021, SWIFT published the CSCF v2022.  This document provides information on changes to controls, additional guidance and many clarifications to existing controls and the associated implementation guidelines. The CSCF v2022 updates will be implemented in the KYC-SA application (the online repository for customer attestations) in July 2022; you will be able to attest your compliance against this CSCF v2022 between early July and 31st December 2022.

Since 2021, SWIFT requests users to support their attestation with an independent assessment. The Independent assessment framework elaborates on the key concepts and rules guiding an independent assessment  conducted by an external party or an independent internal department.

How to access these documents

The CSCF v2022 and the IAF are available here. To access those documents, you must log in to mySWIFT with your swift.com credentials through swift.com > Explore our Knowledge Centre section > Support Pages > Security attestation.

The ISAC and MISP platforms containing the IOCs can be accessed through swift.com.
