Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council
The Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security is the private sector organization that coordinates homeland security issues with the federal financial regulators. It is a group of more than 30 private-sector firms and financial trade associations that works to help reinforce the financial services sector’s resilience against terrorist attacks and other threats to the U.S. financial infrastructure.
FSSCC was formed in 2002. It works with the U.S. Department of Treasury, which has direct responsibility for infrastructure protection and homeland security efforts for the financial services sector, while also serving under the overall guidance of the Department for Homeland Security.
