IT Challenges for the Finance Sector
Cybersecurity – With so much sensitive data stored, steps must be taken to protect it from external threats and ensure that staff are only able to access files they are authorised to.
GDPR – Due to the nature of the data being stored, financial professionals must ensure their data collection, storage and processing methods are robust and transparent.
Hardware – Many financial professionals still work with pen and paper, resulting in high hardware costs for photocopiers, printers, ink and paper.
Remote working – Due to COVID-19, many financial firms across the UK have staff working from home, meaning that gaining access to PC based software can be challenging.
Support – When something with their I.T. system goes wrong, it is vital that those working in finance can get hold of their support company.
