The Importance Of Regulatory Compliance

Oct 11, 2022 by Zazil Martinez

No matter what line of business you’re in, being aware of the status of regulatory compliance is essential to keep all processes streamlined and ensure that the transactions you conduct with your customers comply with these standards efficiently and securely.

Businesses operating in the modern world are accountable to various regulations. Complying with these regulations is essential for avoiding trouble with the law. Knowing local data protection laws to deal with Personal Identifiable Information (PII) on financial-related issues is imperative.


What to Check for Compliance Assurety?

The financial sector has always been at the forefront of data residency, as it requires high-level security. Institutions are required to maintain regulatory compliance and oblige data residency laws.

These laws include knowing what information can be transferred across borders, how consent was obtained from clients, where their info could end up if not processed locally, and penalties that await those found guilty when distributing privileged information without permission.


How can you ensure you’re up-to-date to protect your company and its customers?

  • PCI DSS Compliance: includes setting up a proper firewall, automatic denial of unauthorized access, and encrypted storage.
  • Encryption or tokenization: this limits who can access regulated information.
  • Local data storage: avoid the fines that come with the risk of transferring data abroad or by using cheap data storage servers.

How Does Paystand Assure Compliance?

Businesses tend to refrain from adopting technology when talking about process automation, especially in the financial sector, as manual processing allows them to control sensitive information and be up to date with data security.

Keeping up to date with PII regulations can also be costly and time-consuming. This is where choosing process automation with Paystand comes in handy.

The Paystand approach to data security is rooted in the unique nature of B2B payments and provides robust, comprehensive coverage for your financial needs.
