Watkins recognized that in order to fully benefit from the multi-dimensional aspect of the Tool, an Excel-based solution could be helpful. Therefore, we created and posted an Excel workbook that puts the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool into action by tracking your responses and calculating inherent risk, cybersecurity maturity, and cross-plotting the results on the risk/maturity relationship matrix.
Workbook 2017 Update: FFIEC 2017 Update and Your Suggestions
In 2017 the FFIEC updated their tool to include the option “Yes, with compensating controls” when answering the risk maturity, declarative statements. Watkins’ latest Excel workbook (version 2.00) includes this functionality. This version also includes updates as suggested by those using the workbook. We appreciate the feedback, so please let us know how we can help you. Our latest update has corrected the web links to help you see the pertinent CAT text.
This Excel Workbook, version 2.1 was posted on 9/12/18. It is free for use and can be downloaded from our website—link to FFIEC CAT Excel workbook page.
