OCC Warns National Banks on DDoS Attacks

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), sent a warning bulletin  to the heads of national banks, federal branches and agencies, technology service providers and other related organizations, describing how a recent onslaught of DDoS activity is disrupting the availability of some financial institution websites.

The bulletin recommends that banks maintain a “heightened sense of awareness regarding these attacks” and ensure they are prepared to deal with them. That includes appropriating staff and third-party contractors to help thwart the attacks; implementing an incident response plan across various departments; and sharing information among affected organizations.
