Financial records are highly sensitive, containing personally identifiable information (PII), nonpublic personal information (NPI), and a wealth of other data that must be kept confidential.
Virtru’s data-centric encryption safeguards this sensitive information anywhere it’s stored and shared, across its entire lifecycle.
For those who accept or process payment cards, Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards apply to you, and those include protecting stored cardholder data as well as encrypting transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks. It also requires maintaining a policy that addresses information security for employees and contractors.
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the recent update to the FTC Safeguards Rule requires financial institutions (including insurance providers) to safeguard customer information by developing, implementing, and maintaining a comprehensive information security program, one element of which is to “protect by encryption all customer information held or transmitted by you both in transit over external networks and at rest,” wherever feasible.
Largely aligned with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommendations for cybersecurity, FINRA evaluates firms’ cybersecurity and risk management processes to ensure customer data is protected. According to FINRA, it “assesses a firm’s ability to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive customer information.”
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau underscores the need to comply with GLBA, particularly as it relates to transparently communicating privacy practices to consumers.
Email represents a massive surface area of risk, especially when sensitive data is shared over email. Virtru’s email encryption layers into the applications your employees already use, so they don’t have to change their workflows to protect sensitive data.
