Finance & Insurance

Improve your digital trust

For financial and insurance companies, trust is fundamental. Therefore, you have secure IT systems to handle the sensitive data you receive. But for many companies, sensitive data continues to end up in unprotected inboxes, local folders and shared drives. This typically happens in your contact with customers, partners and employees via e-mail. This makes it a challenge for you 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 and contact details
  • Account numbers, credit card information
  • Social Security numbers, tax identification numbers, and tax returns
  • Securities purchased, amounts invested, and transaction histories
  • Salary information, health data, mortgage and loan contracts

Are you absolutely sure that your employees have secure practices when handling sensitive information? And can you demonstrate that you always protect sensitive information if asked by customers or authorities? Within the financial world in particular, the mistrust that results from insecure data processing can have extra large consequences. The mistakes that are often made in the financial world when processing sensitive data are that you do not know where the data is, you get it sent unencrypted by mail, and you forget to have the data 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
