Digital sovereignty and regulatory compliance for the financial industry
Digital sovereignty is the ability to act and make decisions independently in the digital space and requires data and technology sovereignty. This is quite a challenging task, as banks and financial service providers process extremely sensitive data. The industry is thus also subject to a strict legal and regulatory framework. Implementing the complex requirements is cost and time intensive.
Cloud computing and the use of cloud services are an excellent way of addressing the challenges in a secure and flexible way – without running the risk of costs getting out of hand or risks being neglected.
Why have a cloud that complies with regulatory requirements?
Banks and financial service providers operate in a difficult regulatory environment, as they are exposed to particularly high risks. Strict security standards and data protection are given top priority. The industry must therefore comply with the comprehensive requirements of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). Infringement of the requirements could significantly damage the reputation of a financial services provider and ultimately result in withdrawal of its BaFin license.
Our portfolio enables the use of cloud services under a legally compliant standard outsourcing contract. The cloud services comply with the requirements of BaFin, which are formulated in the “Guidance with outsourcing to cloud provider” document. Our services, of course, also meet all the requirements arising from supervisory law and legislation, including:
- the minimum requirements regarding risk management and
- the German banking supervisory requirements for IT (BAIT).
