New online educational tools to assist bank executives in defending against cybercrime have been added to the website of the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation), the independent government entity that insures depositor accounts in member banks, according to the ABA Banking Journal.

Included in the new suite of offerings are two cybersecurity awareness videos for bank directors, which provide a look at the ever-evolving threatscape and provide best practices for confronting cyberthreats using the regulators' Cybersecurity Assessment Tool.

As well, three other lessons – covering ransomware, malware and DDoS – have been added to the FDIC's online “Cyber Challenge,” intended to foster dialog among bank executives about operational risk and the potential impact of information technology interruptions on everyday banking processes.
