Our cybersecurity testing uses the same ranking of vulnerabilities required by the Payment Card Industry, including MasterCard and Visa, required banks, merchants and Member Service Providers (MSPs) to protect cardholder information by adhering to a set of security standards.  The Payment Card Industry security standard (PCI) includes MasterCard's Site Data Protection (SDP) program and Visa's Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP).

FYI - The FDIC, NCUA, and the OCC do not have a requirement that financial institutions change penetration testing firms on a periodic basis. Any such decision would be up to bank management.  Refer to http://www.yennik.com/occ_10-12-16_rotation_letter.pdf http://www.yennik.com/ncua_12-21-16_rotation_letter.pdf, and at http://www.yennik.com/fdic_10-18-16_rotation_letter.pdf.
