As we approach mid-year, we want to take a moment to remind you that your organization is required to complete the Security and Resiliency Assurance Program (“Assurance Program”) attestation by December 31, 2021. The Assurance Program was implemented in response to the evolving security threat landscape. As part of this program, organizations and service providers that use the FedLine® Solutions must:
- Conduct an assessment of their compliance with the Federal Reserve Banks’ FedLine security requirements
- Submit an attestation that they have completed the assessment
To help your organization complete your attestation, we’ve highlighted helpful tips below to get you started.
- The Participant Expectations document outlines the high-level steps your organization must take to complete the Assurance Program. This is a great place to get started. The Participant Expectations document can be found within the kickoff materials that were emailed to your End User Authorization Contacts (EUACs).
- There are no penalties for completing your attestation early. Add the Assurance Program to your organization’s scheduled compliance program as a recurring annual process and take the worry out of missing the annual deadline of December 31.
- When performing your security assessment, keep in mind the FedLine Solutions Security Requirements, Operating Circulars and FedLine Security and Control Procedures are intentionally not prescriptive, as the applicable controls will be different for each organization based on their use of FedLine Solutions or Financial Services. This documentation for your organization can be accessed in the EUAC Center via FedLine Home. If you are unable to locate this information, please contact the Customer Contact Center at (888) 333-7010.
- If you cannot find your Assurance Program email, please contact other EUACs within your organization and request they forward the email to you (not delegate), or you can contact the Customer Contact Center at (888) 333-7010. The sending domain for your materials is @adobesign.com.
If you have additional questions about the Assurance Program, our account executives are available to assist you. To find a list of Federal Reserve Bank contacts specific to your organization, use the Find Your Contacts tool.
