Information Technology has become a great source of potential vulnerability for financial institutions. Any compromise in the confidentiality, integrity or availability of customer information can result not only in a loss of reputation, but potential fines as well as substantial legal and financial exposure. FIPCO can help your institution in numerous ways. Two of which are; Threat Intelligence Briefings and IT Audit & Security Services.

First, FIPCO offers IT Audit & Security Services. FIPCO’s InfoSec and Audit team can work with you to identify improvements in your information security program and computing environment before concerns and deficiencies are identified by examiners – or worse, vulnerabilities are exploited causing losses from unauthorized access. With a proactive approach to risk management, we can offer your organization professional guidance regarding:

  • Cybersecurity Framework awareness training and consulting
  • Information/Cyber Security Program and supporting policy development
  • IT Risk Assessments
  • Information Security Program, Policy and Procedure Auditing
  • Human Firewall Testing (USB/mobile media, email or phone social engineering)
  • Internal and external technical vulnerability/penetration assessments
  • Risk Focused Strategic Security and Audit Consulting
  • Facilitated Tabletop Exercises for Business Continuity/Disaster and Incident Response 

Secondly, FIPCO offers Threat Intelligence Briefings. These low-cost events are peer group discussions that allow you to network with your fellow bankers on information technology, audit and security issues and pain points. This event is held in a facilitated round table discussion format designed to give all attendees a forum for networking and discussing the issues that everyone is facing.  Each attendee is encouraged to share experiences and learn from one another. Space is limited and registration is required. Lunch will be provided following the discussion. The next available dates are:

  • April 11 (Fond du Lac)
  • May 9 (Hudson)

Registration for these events or future events can be found at

And, just as you’d expect, compliance is our paramount priority. Our services meet both examiner expectations and industry regulations, and are customized to your unique situation. We combine our experience and expertise with industry best practices to deliver actionable results that you can be confident in.
