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.  

The CSCF v2021 document provides information on changes to controls, additional guidance and many clarifications to existing controls and their associated implementation guidelines.

In 2020, SWIFT also published a revised version of the Independent Assessment Framework (IAF); this was a result of the covid-19 pandemic. This updated version factored in revised timelines for the forthcoming implementation of the independent internal or external assessment requirement.

How to access these documents

The CSCF v2021 and the revised IAF are both available on swift.com. To access the documents, you must log in to mySWIFT with your swift.com credentials via swift.com > Explore our Knowledge Centre section > Support Pages > Security attestation

In addition, SWIFT shares Indicators of Compromise (IoC) via the SWIFT ISAC Portal. These automated feeds are supplied in STIX format over TAXII protocol. In 2021, these automated feeds will migrate to MISP. Subscribed customers will need to take action to ensure a smooth migration to the new platform.
