Increasing Cyberattacks are hampering enterprise compliance risk management.

The rapid digitization of the banking and financial industries is driving reliance on modern tools for business communication. And email has become a dominant form of communication between financial services organizations and their customers and partners.

This shift creates large volumes of unstructured business communication data making retention and oversight initiatives more complex for legal and compliance management. And with financial data as the prime target of hackers, the growing sophistication and number of cyberattacks are not helping

High stakes for Financial services organizations

Being the most targeted and the most heavily regulated, Financial services organizations face heavy compliance and regulatory risk in case of compliance violations.

Theft or loss of critical customer data

A bulk of the business communication of financial services companies is likely to carry sensitive and private information belonging to their customers.

These could include PII (Personally identifiable information), transaction documents, account reports, notifications, etc.

Accidental or intentional data erasure by exiting employees and focussed cyberattacks increase the risk of data loss.

Loss of Reputation and Trust

Financial services institutions build their brand on the strength of their security systems and the robustness of their data management platforms.

An inability to comply with audits or unsupervised customer communication, or a successful data breach can raise questions about their reputation for customers and prospects.

More stringent legal and compliance demands

With the fast-increasing digitization of the financial services businesses, regulators have become more demanding about adherence to cyber security compliance around long-term data retention, data security, and data access.

Thus, complying with industry regulations and laws while reducing penalties, litigation, and reputation risks associated with data or compliance violations is a top priority for financial service companies.

Long-term data protection is challenging for enterprise risk management and compliance

Long-term data protection is challenging for enterprise risk management and compliance.

  • Increasingly stringent regulations need you to retain data for several years.
    However, storing and managing large volumes of data is a challenge with traditional unoptimized systems.
  • Litigations and Audits need you to produce data in hours and not weeks/months.
    Data fragmentation across various storage mediums makes it a significant challenge to find old data quickly.
  • You must store data immutably with an audited chain of custody to use as evidence in legal proceedings.
    Easier said than done with traditional systems, which lack the sophistication to achieve this.
  • Data leakage or compliance violations in customer communications can impact trust.
    Your standard backup/archival software lacks a supervision layer that uncovers policy breaches. Also, data residing in employee mailboxes and devices makes it harder to prevent loss.
  • Ex-employee data may be required even years into the future to investigate scams and frauds.
    Cost-effectively preserving former employee data long-term is a significant challenge facing financial services institutions.
