Think of all the electronic data your financial institution is housing:
- Every customer’s personal data
- All sensitive transaction information
Even with world-class technology, modern encryption measures, and state-of-the-art security systems in place, there’s still one issue:
Your financial institution’s outdated hardware.
“It Can’t Happen to Us.” Think Again.
Here are all the types of financial documents that could put your company at risk:
- Income Statements
- Payroll Forms
- Invoice Documents
Financial Industry Security Issues:
According to the 2016 Financial Cybersecurity Report issued by SecurityScorecard, there are several issues that banks, credit unions, and other financial entities should be aware of:
- Almost all U.S. commercial banks have a Network Security grade of ‘C’ or below
- The Financial industry’s I.P. Reputation score was far below average. According to the same source, “low IP Reputation scores are over three times more likely to experience a data breach compared to companies with a high IP reputation score”
The Physical Remnants of Web-Based Banking:
Customer credentials pass through several checkpoints (some physical, some digital), and the likelihood that some of that information is still stored on physical devices is high.
As technology evolves, the need for data protection increases.
Since most financial data and sensitive banking documentation is housed on computers, laptops, and phones, there is a need to properly dispose of this hardware without sacrificing your sensitive info to a potential data breach.
You’re liable for your data. Let’s change that.
