In 2016, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (Swift) established the Customer Security Programme (CSP), introducing the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF). Swift’s Customer Security Programme (CSP) helps financial institutions ensure their defences against cyberattacks are up-to-date and adequate to protect the integrity of the broader financial network. Users compare the security measures they have implemented with those detailed in the Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF) before attesting their level of compliance annually.
With solid attestation and compliance rates, the CSP reflects a community of highly engaged users committed to stopping cyberattacks in their tracks. And, as the cyber threat landscape evolves, so does the CSP.

Swift CSP Readiness
The readiness of your attestation starts with proper planning. First, we meet and discuss with your team to understand the architecture type and the applicability of each control in your environment.

We assist your team in preparing a compliance plan based on your operating environment needs to achieve and maintain CSCF compliance.
