Expert IT consulting saves money and promotes efficiency
No two businesses are the same. That goes double for businesses that operate in finance. When dealing with people’s money, operational effectiveness needs to be maintained. Your business needs an expert perspective in order to get to the bottom of your operational inefficiencies.
At First Column IT, we offer comprehensive consulting for businesses in the financial industry. With the speed and importance of the transactions your organization makes, maintaining a reliable, secure, and compliant IT infrastructure is key. Our knowledgeable consultants can design an innovative solution that completely works for your company today and in the future.
Security-minded experts handle all your compliance needs
If data security and regulatory compliance are integral to your business’ success, having dedicated professionals who understand what’s at stake can make all the difference. First Column IT’s certified IT technicians know what it takes to meet the data protection, reporting, and security standards for several regulations and regulatory bodies, including:
- General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Security and Exchange Commission (SEC)
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
- Payment Card Index (PCI-DSS)
- Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA)
Our top-to-bottom approach will ensure that data is secure and in the right place, reports are reliable and available, and that your organization has sufficiently complied with all federal and state regulations.
Furthermore, your organization needs to remain compliant to the rules laid out by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) that dictates and enforces rules for members of the financial industry. Unless your firm is already regulated by another independent organization, you have to be a FINRA member in order to operate.
Beyond that, using state-of-the-art tools, our team of professionals can monitor and manage your network and infrastructure remotely to ensure that your data is secure and that your infrastructure is free from threats and vulnerabilities.
