DTCC Implements New “Idle Session Timeout” for All Web-based Applications

By Michael Battaglini

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) is reducing the Idle Session Timeout to 20 minutes for all Web-based applicationsAs part of its continuing efforts for the most robust and secure processing environments possible, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) is reducing the Idle Session Timeout to 20 minutes for all Web-based applications.

On July 11, 2015, the new timeout value will be implemented for all DTCC applications in both the test (PSE) and production environments.

This change will not disrupt any user actively interacting with a server application, but will only terminate sessions that are idle and inactive for 20 consecutive minutes. The system will require the user to re-authenticate in order to resume working.

“This is an important enhancement to strengthen our information security protocols to protect clients using DTCC applications,” explained Mahi Dontamsetti, DTCC Global Head of IT Risk. “Users are generally accustomed to this type of time-out security, for example, when logged into personal online banking. We are applying the same standard time-out model to DTCC’s business applications.”

Important Notices announcing this change were distributed to all participant firms and clients of DTCC’s subsidiaries on June 5. If you have any questions, please contact DTCC’s Customer Support Center at (888) 382-2721 (U.S. and Canada) or (212) 855-8099 (International).
