FDiTech launches tech sprint to test institutions' resilience

Fintech FDIC FDiTech Consumer Finance


On August 16, the FDIC’s technology lab, FDiTech, announced a tech sprint, which challenges participants to “identify solutions that can be used by institutions of all sizes to measure and test their resilience to a major disruption.” The tech sprint, From Hurricanes to Ransomware: Measuring Resilience in the Banking World, is designed to review new measures, data, tools, or capabilities to calculate how well community banks, and the banking sector as a whole, can withstand a major disruption. According to the FDIC, “[r]ecognizing the evolving threat environment to bank operations, their need to strengthen resilience, and given the challenges that banks face in identifying criteria to determine their respective levels of tolerance for a disruption, the FDIC seeks solutions that improve sector-wide resilience by helping answer the question: ‘What would be the most helpful set of measures, data, tools, or other capabilities for financial institutions, particularly community banks, to use to determine and to test their operational resilience against a disruption?’” Registration will be required for stakeholders to participate, and additional information on how to participate is expected on the FDiTech website.
