Challenge that is under way to get 5,000 bankers registered on Amplify. n in the know with DOUG JOHNSON ABA VP, Risk Management ABABJ: What are some of the trends in cybersecurity risk? Doug Johnson: Cyber attacks are here to stay. Mobile banking is growing, and there is an increasing blending of platforms and functionality. That means more avenues for potential denial-ofservice attacks. Looking ahead, we don't want these attacks to serve as diversions for other, more serious attacks that could compromise customer data. We learned from a recent survey of ABA's Community Bankers Council that more than one-third of council members had experienced direct or indirect denial-of-service attacks. The bankers also said that core processors play a major role in managing cybersecurity, which means strong risk management of that third-party relationship is crucial. ABABJ: What steps is ABA taking to help banks with cybersecurity? DJ: We provide a number of resources on our web page at aba.com/cybersecurity, along with bulletins and updates on current threats. We've also scheduled five webcasts on cybersecurity in the coming year. We are also looking at providing additional products and services to help member banks through ABA Endorsed Solutions.
