FFIEC User Access Reviews for Credit Unions/Banks (Financial Institutions)

Financial Institutions such as Credit unions and banks must perform user access reviews as outlined in the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Information Security booklet. This “Information Security” booklet is an integral part of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Information Technology Examination Handbook (IT Handbook) and should be read in conjunction with the other booklets in the IT Handbook. This booklet provides guidance to examiners and addresses factors necessary to assess the level of security risks to a financial institution’s information systems. It also helps examiners evaluate the adequacy of the information security program’s integration into overall risk management.


II.C.7(b) User Access Program

Management should develop a user access program to implement and administer physical and logical access controls to safeguard the institution’s information assets and technology. This program should include the following elements:

Principle of least privilege, which recommends minimum user profile privileges for both physical and logical access based on job necessity.

Alignment of employee job descriptions to the user access program.

Requirements for business and application owners to define user profiles.

Ongoing reviews by business line and application owners to verify appropriate access based on job roles with changes reported on a timely basis to security administration personnel.

Timely notification from human resources to security administrators to adjust user access based on job changes, including terminations.

Periodic independent reviews that ensure effective administration of user access, both physical and logical.

“The SecurEnds team provided us with outstanding support. Once implemented we immediately found we were overspending for some privileges and reclaimed seats that slipped through the cracks. I can’t imagine how companies much bigger than ours manage access control without a tool like this.
