JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- March 7, 2013

FIS™ (NYSE:FIS), the world’s largest provider of banking and payments
technology, announced today that Executive Vice President and Chief
Information Security Officer, Greg Schaffer, has been named to Computerworld’s
2013 Premier 100 IT Leaders list. The only CISO to make the roster, Schaffer
was recognized for his industry expertise and transformational work in helping
to elevate FIS’ security posture.

FIS has long recognized the critical importance of information security,
especially as the demands of combatting cybercrime increase and consumers’
interest grows in remote and self-service channels, such as mobile and online
banking. FIS is committed to becoming the industry leader in information
security, and Schaffer and his team are focused on continually improving the
complex and interconnected ecosystem of solutions designed to protect FIS
clients and the customers they serve.

“Cybercriminals and those defending against their attacks are in an
ever-evolving arms race,” said Schaffer. “FIS embraces cybersecurity as a
critical discipline that permeates every layer of our clients’ organizations –
from the boardroom to the back office. For this reason, we are committed to
our goal of becoming best-in-class in all facets of information security –
from identifying system vulnerabilities, to anticipating looming threats and
defending against sophisticated fraud schemes. While no one can stop the
constant attacks directed at financial services organizations, a multi-layered
focus on prevention, detection and response can significantly reduce cyber
risk.”

Schaffer, who joined FIS last April, previously served as acting deputy
undersecretary for the National Protection and Program Directorate and
assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications for the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security.

In 2013 under Schaffer’s leadership, FIS will continue to strengthen its
solutions, using a data-centric focus to proactively manage cyber threats by
leveraging all the human and technology assets of the entire FIS enterprise
while insisting on execution excellence in all aspects of cybersecurity.

“The presence of a Computerworld Premier 100 IT leader on our executive
leadership team underscores our commitment to becoming the leader in
information security among financial technology providers and being our
clients’ most trusted partner,” said FIS Chairman and Chief Executive Officer,
Frank Martire. This is a position that we take very seriously and underscores
our client focus guiding principle.”

Computerworld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders roster identifies professionals who
