Creating real value for our clients' firms

Organisations regulated by the FCA are required to comply with a number of requirements where their information technology is concerned. Additionally, many financial services businesses manage sensitive personal data, and therefore, must adhere to the Data Protection Act (and GDPR) by implementing necessary technical measures to secure and protect this data.

Leaders within FCA-regulated organisations are responsible for ensuring that appropriate IT systems and controls are maintained. They must also assess their technological risks and take necessary steps to manage and mitigate them. Furthermore, they are tasked with ensuring that specific electronic communications and records are retained for various stipulated periods.

Connexion’s experience with the FCA and other regulated organisations enables us to assist organisations in understanding their technology risks and the solutions available not only for mitigating risk but also for meeting regulatory requirements and enhancing productivity.
