They need to be compliant with:

  • SOX Sarbanes Oxley - Act designed to enhance corporate responsibility as it relates to financial reporting issue
  • PCI/DSS Payment Card Industry - guidelines for organization that store, transmit or process customer credit card data.
  • GLB Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act - mandate that every financial institution should have polices and processes in place to protect "non-public personal information" from threats.
