banks stay a step ahead of the growing
threat. CyberScout’s DataRiskStages
earned the ABA endorsement for its comprehensive pre- and post-data breach services after an extensive review.
Before a breach occurs, DataRiskStages

breach laws, develop incident response
plans and offer other staff awareness tools.

provides an assessment of the breach and
recommended remediation. The program—available in both packages and a-la-carte pricing—also offers assistance
with drafting notification letters, public relations consulting, call handling assistance, and templates for a customer FAQ
and other needed documentation. Bank
employees gain access to fraud resolution
services through the program.
