Enhanced Security Requirements in Financial Regulated New gTLDs

Extract: "As you are aware, fTLD Registry Services, LLC (fTLD), registry operator of the .bank gTLD and community applicant for the .insurance gTLD, recently engaged a community-based security requirements working group to review the enhanced security requirements the American Bankers Association (ABA) and Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) submitted to ICANN on 20 December 2011, 1 with a request that they be implemented in financially-oriented gTLDs. Though ICANN did not take a formal position on the recommended requirements, ABA and FSR were pleased to see them referenced in question 30, Security Policy, of the Applicant Guidebook, as an illustrative example of an independent standard to demonstrate effective security controls are in place for gTLDs such as those that are financial services oriented".
