Overcoming financial services compliance hurdles
BY PATRICE PEYRET
Compliance is something that Financial Services businesses can no longer afford to ignore.
The financial services sector is one of the most tightly-regulated industries there is.
In light of this fact, it’s critical for your organization to make compliance one of its top priorities.
When compliance is treated as an afterthought, audits and inquiries from regulatory organizations—like the OCC (Office of the Comptroller of the Currency), the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation), and the Federal Reserve—become a major pain point.
Even more concerning, your business, and your clients’ confidential data, will be more susceptible to incursions from hackers. A single successful cyber attack can threaten business continuity and compromise consumers’ trust in your business.
Therefore, compliance must become a mindset, not a checklist. When you and your entire team take a proactive approach to compliance, you’ll be able to meet your basic goals and proactively improve your standing within the financial services sector.
