Community Bank

Staying One Step Ahead of the Bad Guys

Advanced information security, whether with people, products, or technologies, is not something one might associate with an over 130-year-old community bank with 300 plus employees and 11 locations across the Upper Peninsula and Southeast Michigan. But the bank's CIO, John, who is an early adopter of cloud computing and associated technologies, believes staying ahead of the bad guys and even being in front of what is required from a regulatory perspective is an obligation

Visibility is the Key

The mission: expand the bank’s existing cybersecurity program to proactively defend against fraud and those intent on stealing customer and financial data. The institutions biggest pain point was the lack of visibility into what was happening on the bank’s network due to the rapid adoption of cloud computing and remote working. Having little understanding of what constituted “normal” activity in this new world, how could the bank’s small IT and cyber team monitor for unusual behavior or potentially malicious activity, let alone detect and neutralize an attack like ransomware

John, CIO
