IT Governance business signs three-year contract with South Asian financial institution


GRC International Group PLC (AIM: GRC, "GRC" or "the Group"), the international governance, risk management and compliance company whose main business is cyber defence-in-depth, announces that its IT Governance business has signed a three-year contract with a South Asian financial institution to help the organisation with its SWIFT compliance. This follows IT Governance recently being approved to join the SWIFT CSP (Cyber Security Providers) directory.


IT Governance will initially identify and report on gaps in the financial institution's SWIFT compliance and existing cyber security controls.  It will then work with the organisation on remediation activities, recommending minimum security controls and reassessing its SWIFT compliance framework.


SWIFT is a global member-owned cooperative and the world's leading provider of secure financial messaging services. It carries over five billion financial messages a year. The CSP directory was developed by SWIFT for international businesses looking to assess counter parties' levels of cyber compliance and implementation of the CSP mandatory and advisory controls.


IT Governance was officially approved to join the Swift CSP directory in October 2022 having met the exacting criteria with its focus on cyber security services.


Alan Calder, Chief Executive Officer, commented:


"The combination of securing one of South Asia's largest financial institutions as a client and being approved for the SWIFT CSP directory demonstrate our growing international reach in Asia/Pacific and our widening capabilities.


"SWIFT's CSP programme is one of the largest of its kind in the world, particularly in financial services.  It is one of only a few mandatory global cybersecurity programmes. IT Governance's addition to its unique CSP directory demonstrates our commitment to broadening our services in the financial industry and the strength of our SWIFT services.


"We believe that there are additional business opportunities to be pursued in the Asia/Pacific region and similarly the Swift CSP approval further enhances our highly regarded capabilities. We also hope to secure further contracts to assist organisations on SWIFT compliance."
