WARRENTON, Va., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Fauquier Bankshares, Inc.
(Nasdaq: FBSS) - The Fauquier Bank is pleased to announce that they have
been awarded the 2013 Ventana Research Leadership Award for the Governance,
Risk and Compliance (GRC) category. This award recognizes an individual,
team or department that has best demonstrated exemplary leadership and
management in the areas of governance, risk and compliance. The GRC category
includes evaluation of an organization's use of information and technology
across finance, operations and IT to meet the requirements of GRC.

The Ventana Research Leadership Awards recognize organizations and supporting
technology vendors that have effectively achieved superior results through
using people, processes, information and technology while applying best
practices within business operations and technology categories.

The Fauquier Bank's leadership and management initiative arose from the
implementation of data software issued by the company, Datawatch Corporation.
This software enables critical information to be shared with multiple
departments within the Bank. The initiative has impacted the Bank's ability
to access reliable data quickly – allowing all areas of the Bank to analyze
critical data more efficiently in order to immediately make decisions that
impact the Bank and customers.

According to Chip Register, SVP/CIO of The Fauquier Bank, "Properly
maintaining and managing data is key to creating information which provides
TFB associates and customers pertinent financial guidance. Information
governance, both a framework and philosophy, utilizes resources provided by
Datawatch to ensure TFB's ability to convert data into actionable information
and thereby make available enhanced services to the Bank's customers."

Sarah Bernardi, Director of Marketing Communications of Datawatch Corporation,
said "The Fauquier Bank is a great example of how looking critically at
current technology and business process - along with a little hard work - can
lead to improving efficiencies across an organization. The deployment of a
solution that makes information more accessible for use across the
organization to improve these processes and offer broader analytical
capabilities is critical to a successfully run business - and Fauquier is well
on their way!"
