Washington, D.C. (Feb. 12, 2014)—The Independent Community Bankers of America’s® (ICBA) released the following statement following today’s release of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.

The NIST has worked with the banking and financial sectors to establish a voluntary framework that reflects current cybersecurity best practices to strengthen our nation’s security infrastructure, which is a top priority for the nation’s community banks.

“As our nation faces growing cybersecurity risks, today’s report comes at a crucial time and will help the public and private sectors address these challenges. ICBA looks forward to continuing to work with the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council, the Obama administration and Congress to protect consumers and their communities from the growing cybersecurity threat.”
