CLEARNETWORK DELIVERS SOME OF THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY MEASURES AVAILABLE
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) requires financial institutions to implement a comprehensive network security program that protects the privacy of customer records. These standards are mandatory requirements, with specific information security guidelines and checklists made available to provide guidance on compliance. Institutions must employ an integrated security strategy that establishes perimeter (firewall) security and security inside the network, adopting a proactive network security risk management capability. Security detection tools (Intrusion Detection Systems) are to be considered in cases where a high degree of GLBA data exists.
CLEARNETWORK delivers comprehensive perimeter firewall security, Network Security Monitoring (NSM) services, and Email Security services, allowing your firm to concentrate on value-added functions and business processes rather than performing labor-intensive security tasks. We have delivered these integrations and services successfully to numerous clients, all of whom experience the ease of management and peace of mind knowing that their data is safe and that they are meeting and exceeding their SOX and GLBA requirements.
SEC Rule 17a-4 has been regulating the data retention practices of financial firms since the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. This long history along with the SEC’s amendments and clarifications on electronic storage have made 17a-4 one of the clearest regulations from an IT implementation perspective. While the requirements are relatively clear, meeting them while dealing with rapidly growing email stores, make complying with 17a-4 a daunting challenge. From a legal perspective, litigation is fought on the basis of the documentary record, and the litigant best able to recreate it at the lowest cost carries a valuable advantage into any dispute. CLEARNETWORK’s cloud-based email storage was offered with this in mind.
