Customer Security Controls Framework

Learn more about Customer Security Controls and the Independent Assessment Framework


In July 2019, SWIFT published the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF) v2020. This document provides information on security controls, general guidance and clarifications, as well as the associated implementation guidelines.

In early 2020, we also published the Independent Assessment Framework (IAF). This supports users and assessors in carrying out their respective responsibilities throughout the CSCF assessment process, and in verifying that users’ attestations correspond with their actual level of security control implementation.

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).
