Technology and Regulatory Compliance

When you’re searching for regulatory compliance software or financial technology solutions, you’re looking for a company that you can trust to uphold the same operating and stability guidelines that you do. And in the heavily regulated fintech and regtech industries, that’s a necessity. At CSI, we maintain strict oversight of our people, processes and technology to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of information in accordance with FFIEC compliance guidelines. We understand the complexities of today’s business environment and remain committed to providing safe, secure and solid service in:
Internal Controls: CSI undergoes multiple independent reviews annually. We respect the sensitive nature of your information and take steps to ensure we maintain the highest levels of confidentiality.
Business Continuity: CSI maintains business continuity protocols for roles, policies and procedures if services must transfer from our main facilities to one of our several backup locations.
Financial Stability: CSI has a solid history of financial performance and stability. We cultivate long-term recurring revenue relationships with strong financial institutions and other industries.
“Working with CSI has allowed us to grow significantly without the addition of more overhead. Five years ago we were a $50 million bank, and today we are a $130 million bank—and I have less staff now than I did then.”
