What Is MAS TRM?

MAS-TRM is the Monetary Authority of Singapore's guidelines on technology risk management. Among the guidelines' objectives is to improve cyber security standards and strengthen the financial sector's resilience to cyberattacks.

Recently, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MA) revised its MAS-TRM guidelines to help financial organizations protect themselves against cyber threats in response to the ever-growing cyber threat landscape.

Who Needs To Meet MAS TRM Compliance?

All financial organizations, including retail and commercial banks, central banks, credit unions, and savings and loan associations, should follow MAS TRM guidelines. Companies operating in the cryptocurrency industry, those using Bitcoin payment gateways, and even venture capitalists will also be subject to these same guidelines.

compliance log controls

Logging for Compliance

Logs are mentioned as being a crucial component of ensuring compliance with many different standards within the official MAS TRM documentation. In control 7.5.7, it was highlighted that logs provide valuable information for investigation, analysis, and troubleshooting. Thus, the financial institution must enable the logging functions of IT systems to automatically log events generated during the process of implementing any new changes.

As part of 12.2.2, a procedure for collecting, processing, reviewing, and retaining system logs should be established to assist the financial institution with its security monitoring operations. Furthermore, these logs should be protected against unauthorized access and include logs related to applications, networks, and operating systems.

Security Logging

It is recommended within guideline 6.4.6 that financial institutions should conduct robust security testing and screening of APIs before they are deployed into production. It is also necessary for the financial institution to log the access sessions made by third parties. These logs will include the identity of the party making the API connection, as well as the date and time access was granted.

Control 12.2.4 suggests applying user behavioural analytics to security monitoring to improve its effectiveness. It is possible to analyze system logs in real-time using machine learning algorithms to establish a baseline of normal user activities and identify suspicious or abnormal behaviour.

Additionally, for 12.2.5, it is recommended that multiple events registered on system logs be correlated in order to detect suspicious or anomalous patterns of system activity.
