Cybersecurity threats exploit the increased complexity and connectivity of critical infrastructure systems, which places national security, the economy, and public safety at risk. To combat these cyber risks, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) developed a risk-based Cybersecurity Framework to provide financial institutions industry standards and best practices to help manage cybersecurity risks. 

Archer FFIEC-Aligned Cybersecurity Framework provides straightforward guidelines for consistently addressing and managing cybersecurity risks. Profile owners can determine their inherent risk levels, prioritize, and scope profile elements, and develop plans to achieve their desired or targeted risk and maturity levels for their organization’s cybersecurity program. Assessors can evaluate these profiles against the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Maturity categories to determine the current maturity level and designate a target maturity level. Previous assessments can be archived for comparison with current Profile and measure progress. Reports and dashboards provide clear insight to the cybersecurity current state and progress being made toward the desired cybersecurity state.


  • Offers a common language to communicate requirements and progress among stakeholders (internal, partners, contractors, suppliers)
  • Provides a method to understand larger cybersecurity ecosystem
  • Apply the FFIEC best practices of risk management to improve cybersecurity and resiliency of critical infrastructure
