The Ultimate Guide to Data Security for Financial Services

In the Financial Services industry, data is leveraged constantly in order to derive the most relevant and substantial insights. But where this data comes from – and where it goes – are not always easy to discern.

With strict regulatory requirements and reliance on legacy systems, managing data governance for financial services can be difficult, particularly at the speed and scale of the market. Locking data down too tightly with manual access request processes slows time to insights, but opening it up too broadly puts sensitive financial information at risk of exposure.

It is essential that financial services companies prioritize data security and governance throughout all points of the data lifecycle – or else risk it being misused or breached. But the question is how?
