In its new blog post on ACA International’s Safeguards Resource Center, TPx, ACA’s Safeguards security partner of choice, explains the ins and outs of vulnerability scans and penetration testing. The post also covers what the Federal Trade Commission means when it talks about “continuous monitoring.”
“Per the FTC regulations in the Safeguards Rule, financial organizations must perform a penetration test annually and a vulnerability scan 2x a year,” the blog post notes.
ACA’s Safeguards Rule Resource Center provides multiple resources and compliance tools for members in line with the FTC’s requirement to develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive information security program by June 9, 2023.
The Safeguards Rule Resource Center also features the text of the amended rule, articles breaking down compliance requirements, and related recordings of the members-only ACA Huddle and new education offerings.
