This Week's FAQ: Requesting New Security Roles in SWIFT?

Question: What is the process for requesting new security roles in SWIFT?

Answer: Agency security administrators are responsible for initiating changes to security roles for employees. To request new security roles in SWIFT, fill out the required forms on the Security Access Forms webpage. Once these forms are completed, send them to your agency's security administrator. If you're not sure what forms to fill out, or if you do not know who your security administrator is, please contact the SWIFT Help Desk for guidance.
