Security Evaluations
and Compliance

Good News! Your engineers are now familiar with the APIs available from your Processor or Bank-as-a-Service Platform provider... Product specs are almost final and your designers have a pretty good mockup of the User eXperience...
Bad News! Your partner Bank would now like to see your AML Policy, your Written Information Security Plan, the results of your most recent Penetration Test, your attestation of PCI compliance, and your employee training log!

We can help your FinTech company be ready with these necessary items, all customized for your specific product and commensurate with the size of your company and your budget.

Security Audits

We help companies secure their products and infrastructure through a structured approach and consistent methodology based on industry-wide best practices and accompanying resources, such as OSSTMM, OWASP, and WASC. We help our clients identify security issues, suggest remediation solutions and provide ongoing support to the customer’s technical team.

Training for FinTech Employees

FinTech teams are often unfamiliar with the financial regulations and security requirements that they have to comply with, often at the explicit request of the banks they partner with to deploy their services.
Most available compliance & security training is difficult to use because it was developed for banks, not for FinTechs.
We have assembled training materials customized for employees and management of FinTechs and we can help administer onboarding and yearly tests to verify that new and existing employees have acquired the required understanding of essential security and compliance rules.

AML / BSA / OFAC Compliance

UDAAP Compliance

GLBA & CCPA Compliance

ID Theft / FACTA Red Flags

Regulation E Compliance

Compliance Policies

Even though your FinTech company is not regulated as a Financial Institution, you are the front line for interactions with customers and the first line of defense against fraud and complaints.
We help draft policy documents as required by your partner Bank, in cooperation with your Operations team, customized for your particular products, roles and responsibilities. Note that your Bank will usually review such documents after we have produced them, and may request changes for specific regulatory compliance reasons. You may also want to have some documents reviewed by legal counsel.
