Customer Security Controls Framework

Learn more about Customer Security Controls and the Independent Assessment Framework


In July 2020, SWIFT published the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF) v2021. This document provides information on changes to controls, additional guidance and many clarifications to existing controls and the associated implementation guidelines.

The CSCF v2021 updates will be implemented in the KYC-SA application (the online repository for customer attestations) in July 2021; you will be then required to attest your compliance against the CSCF v2021 between early July and 31st December 2021.

Early 2020, SWIFT also published a revised version of the Independent Assessment Framework (IAF); it factors in revised timelines for the actual deployment of the independent external/internal assessment.

How to access these documents

These documents can be found by logging in to mySWIFT with your credentials and going to the Knowledge Centre (User Handbook) > Products A-Z > Customer Security Programme (CSP).
