Finance & Insurance

Get control of your digital assets

For financial and insurance companies, digital trust is a fundamental. You already have secure IT systems to handle the sensitive data you receive. But often sensitive data continues to end up in unprotected places. This typically happens via your contact with customers, partners and employees on e-mail, for example. To avoid this, it requires great data discipline from each individual employee. Something only few have. This makes it a challenge to comply with privacy regulations.

Finance data

Here are your sensitive data

Having worked with a number of financial and insurance companies, we know that the sensitive data you hold is typically:

  • Names, addresses, contact details, and investment objectives.
  • Bank and investment account numbers, credit card details.
  • Social Security numbers, tax identification numbers, and tax returns.
  • Securities purchased, amounts invested, and transaction histories.
  • Communications such as emails, messages, and phone records.
  • Salary information, health data, mortgage and loan contracts.

Are you absolutely sure that the employees have secure data handling when handling sensitive information? And can you demonstrate that you protect sensitive information if asked to do so by a customer or the authorities? Mistrust as a result of insecure data processing can have particularly large consequences for companies within the financial world. The mistakes that are often made in the finance and insurance industry when processing sensitive data are that you don’t know where the data is, you get it sent unencrypted via email, and you forget to get it deleted.

Use case

A small investment broker with 18 employees wanted to find the sensitive data they were storing, so they can start complying with data privacy regulations. The company knew they had to protect customers’ financial data, but they had no overview of how much data they actually had or where they had stored it. They received a lot of sensitive information by email – bypassing the company’s secure IT systems. The company decided to get DataMapper and within minutes they got:

A list of all customer data with sensitive information
An overview of the age, type and location of data
A quick way to delete old data
Option to control access to data
One dashboard to monitor all sensitive data

Results and savings for the company


Files, emails and images found in the company’s storage.
