The financial, reputational and regulatory impact of human-related risks in the financial sector can be catastrophic. An employee, contractor or third party can provoke the interruption of a financial institution’s business or give the edge to competitors because they have access to confidential data and tend to act in their own benefit.

A financial service organization has to control the following:

  • VIP accounts
  • Data on cash logistics
  • Client bases (information about legal entities and individuals)
  • Newly announced services
  • Transaction information
  • Shareholder data
  • Personal data on employees and clients
  • Data on debtors
  • Auditor reports
