It's all in the name. CoNetrix tandem software is an online solution that helps ease the burden of regulatory compliance. We have done the research up front so you can be compliant with information security regulations in much less time. Don't labor over extensive language and making sure updates are made to all the right documents. Let us work in tandem with you so you can accomplish your compliance goals.
tandem software was built specifically for financial institutions (banks, savings associations, credit unions, and trust companies) to help increase security, stay in compliance, and lower overhead costs. We understand bank employees, especially for community banks, are asked to wear numerous hats, and with the continued increase in compliance burden, it is hard to keep your balance. In the past, we have primarily assisted banks with their security and compliance needs through expensive consulting, but now with CoNetrix tandem software, you can save time and money without sacrificing information security, cybersecurity, or compliance.

On November 9, 2007, the Agencies jointly issued final rules and guidelines to implement Sections 114 and 315 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACT Act). These rules require financial institutions (banks, credit unions, trust companies, mortgage companies) and creditors to develop and implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft in connection with covered accounts.

On June 28, 2011, the FFIEC issued a supplement to the Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment guidance released in October 2005. The purpose of the supplement is to reinforce the guidance's risk-management framework and update the FDIC, OCC, NCUA, and FRB’s (collectively, the Agencies’) expectations regarding customer authentication, layered security, or other controls in the increasingly hostile online banking environment.
CoNetrix has developed an online software to help financial institutions (i.e., banks, credit unions, savings associations, etc.) go through the risk assessment process and provide customer awareness and education.

As part of employee training, the Agencies (FFIEC, FDIC, OCC, NCUA, and FRB) directed financial institutions to encourage employee awareness and preparation for a variety of social engineering attacks, including phishing email scams.
According to the FFIEC Information Security E-Banking Booklet, phishing is “a digital form of social engineering that uses authentic-looking – but bogus – email to request information from users or direct them to fake Web sites that request information.” Just as technical security is necessary for cybersecurity, employee education plays a role in maintaining cybersecurity. Only employees can save themselves from being victims of a phishing email cyber-attack.
CoNetrix has developed an online software to help financial institutions test their employee preparedness to recognize and avoid phishing attacks. tandem Phishing allows you to:

CoNetrix offers an online solution to help you create and maintain your enterprise-wide policies in tandem.
The tandem Policies module is populated with an Information Security Policies set, created by CoNetrix security experts and tailored for your institution through a multiple-choice questionnaire.

On December 11, 2013, the FFIEC released a guidance on behalf of the FDIC, OCC, FRB, NCUA, CFPB, and SLC titled "Social Media: Consumer Compliance Risk Management Guidance." The guidance is intended to help financial institutions understand potential compliance, legal, reputation, operational, and other risk associated with social media. As part of the guidance, it is suggested each financial institution have a risk management program to identify, measure, monitor, and control risks related to social media.

This is accomplished through vendor management.
