Financial firms such as accountants, bookkeepers, IFAs, mortgage brokers, finance brokers, pension advisors and banks are essential to the day to day running of businesses across the UK, providing financial services and giving advice to businesses, ensuring staff get paid on time, accounts are organised, and businesses run in a tax efficient manner.
Due to the critical nature of these businesses, they must be able to operate in an efficient and accessible manner at all times. Part of this is ensuring their IT systems are reliable and efficient, with cybersecurity measures in place to protect sensitive client data.
With extensive industry experience and a wide range of IT services, Absolutely PC provides a specialist service to the finance industry including cybersecurity, cloud solutions, Cyber Essentials, remote working solutions and managed IT support, ensuring their IT systems are reliable and meet their specific business requirements.
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.
