The endpoint security framework in the SIC system defines the requirements for testing compliance with the security measures defined in the framework. All SIC users must annually certify compliance with the mandatory controls in the form of a “self-attestation”. SIC5 (instant payment) has strong implications for architecture and processes and requires early, adequate preparation.

We will help you become SIC5-ready

This can either be an internal control body or a qualified external service provider such as InfoGuard.
