Cryptocurrency Security Standard Compliance Services



If you process, transmit, or store cryptocurrencies, perform cryptocurrency-based transactions or manage cryptocurrency wallets, cryptocurrency security risk management must be on the top of your mind.

What is Cryptocurrency Security Standard (CCSS)?

Cryptocurrency Security Standard (CCSS) is a set of requirements for all information systems that make use of cryptocurrencies, including exchanges, web applications, and cryptocurrency storage solutions.

CCSS is an open standard designed to augment standard information security practices and to complement existing standards (ISO 27001, PCI DSS, etc.) in order to protect cryptocurrency information against unauthorized data access, sensitive data loss, and data breaches.

CCSS is currently the go-to security standard for any organization that handles and manages crypto wallets as part of its business logic.

Cryptocurrency FAQs

Nothing is static with cryptocurrency, so the most secure assets change over time. As of 2022, the cryptocurrencies that have consistently been recognized as having top tier security are:

  • Monero
  • zCash
  • DASH
  • Verge

These ratings are based primarily on historical data and are subject to change. Also, newer or emerging cryptocurrencies are not necessarily more or less secure than older cryptocurrencies.

Crypto security is measured by CCSS scores, which are then used to rank an organization at one of the three CCSS levels. To receive a score, an organization must undergo an audit focused on the 10 standards of cryptocurrency.

There are various ways to secure cryptocurrency against cyberattacks, including multi-factor authentication (MFA) and using both hot and cold wallets. 

As an organization, the best way to keep cryptocurrency secure is to comply with the CCSS standards, which will ensure the implementation of digital currency security best practices. 

RSI Security's CCSS security services will help you keep your cryptocurrency protected in an ever-changing environment.

The 10 cryptocurrency security standards serve as a framework for protecting cryptocurrency and measuring the efficacy of an organization's security measures.

The standards focus on the following:

  • Audit logs
  • Data sanitization policies
  • Key compromise policies
  • Keyholder grant and revoke policies and procedures
  • Key and seed generation
  • Key storage
  • Key usage
  • Proof of reserve
  • Third-party security audits and penetration tests
  • Wallet creation

These standards ensure all stakeholders are secure, including clients whose cryptocurrency holdings or transactions are managed or otherwise processed by an organization.

A Level I CCSS rating illustrates that most security risks have been addressed through the implementation of industry-standard controls. It’s essentially basic cyber hygiene.

A Level II CCSS rating is granted when an organization's security controls are found to be robust, industry standards are being followed, and the organization is taking things a step further by implementing controls that exceed industry expectations.

A Level III rating is achieved when an organization has implemented enhanced security controls, policies, and procedures. These organizations adhere to policies faultlessly and operate with transparency, leading the charge for cybersecurity across their industry.
