Financial IT Services

Add Business Continuity to your Bottom Line


As a financial services firm, your clients depend on your guidance to help them make the most out of their fiscal decisions. From accounting to hedge fund management, your clients gain peace of mind when advised properly. These relationships require trust, often built over time. What would happen if that trust were threatened? How long could you keep your clients at ease if they were unable to retrieve information or make withdrawals? What would happen if you couldn’t get their tax returns filed in time? What would happen if someone’s identity were stolen and you couldn’t access their information to stop it?

In the financial industry, downtime can be detrimental to your ability to do your job. Nowadays, downtime threats are not only weather-related. Entire systems can fall victim to ransomware. Individual identities can be stolen. In these instances, your clients will turn to you for financial security. Being able to deliver that service is crucial to your reputation and business’ livelihood.

Best Practices for Financial Services IT


In a recent survey by the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, 78% of financial services firms reported cyber risk among their top five concerns. Their concern seems justified as the last 3 years were costly for the financial services industry. These costly incidents seem to be on the rise, but there are some precautions you can take to safeguard your data:

  • Outsource your company’s IT needs to an expert who has experience in the financial industry.
  • Don’t sacrifice quality to save money when purchasing hardware. It will benefit you (and your bottom line) to have strong technology in the long run.
  • Perform timely hardware and software updates, maintenance and backups.
  • Establish, review and maintain system security of all practice technology.
  • Any company that has not recently re-assessed its backup and disaster recovery procedures should, therefore, do so in order to conform to these industry-standard best practices.
  • A true business continuity solution will protect data on-premises and in the cloud.
