3. Strong CMS Security
Bank and credit union websites are the most attractive targets on the Internet for hackers. While there are many good open-source and commercial CMSs available, there are just a handful that even come close to meeting the security requirements for financial institutions. We know which CMSs meet FDIC, NCUA and FFIEC security standards. We consider these the bare minimum requirements:
- Multi-factor authentication for administrators
- IP-restricted CMS access to limit who can even reach the login page
- Long password/passphrase support with forced expiration thresholds
- Automatic version control and change management workflow capabilities
- Fine grained access control to limit users to only the content elements each user needs
- SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting, Brute Force Protection, and other common attack defenses built-in
- Staging & production support to enable changes to be made and tested in staging before deployment
Before you choose a platform, avail yourself of our knowledge so that you can make an informed decision. We will give you honest advice and it won't cost you a dime.
