Cascade Takes Compliance Very Seriously
Due to the varied criminal activity in the financial sector, federal and state agencies heavily regulate and monitor anyone involved in the financial services industry. The card industry itself also has very high-security standards for services providers and merchants. These regulations can change often, and staying on top of them is vital in getting ahead of criminal activity. That’s why Cascade takes BSA/AML compliance and PCI-DSS compliance seriously. Our team members are specially trained and highly certified in all areas of regulatory compliance for card programs.
What is BSA/AML?
The Bank Secrecy Act, or BSA, is a U.S. law that requires financial institutions to do their part in assisting the U.S. Government in thwarting money laundering in the U.S. For this reason, the law is also known as the Anti-Money Laundering law. It consists of various regulations that financial institutions are required to follow. Cascade’s team of experts ensures your program adheres to these BSA/AML compliance regulations.
What is PCI?
The payment card industry has created a set of data security standards (officially called PCI-DSS) designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit card information protect and store that sensitive information securely. Some of these regulations are technical, and some are procedural. Cascade is PCI Certified as a Level 1 Service Provider, which is the highest level of PCI compliance; this is not only for your customers’ protection but also for yours.
How Cascade FinTech Provides Regulatory Compliance For Card Programs
In addition to our sound fraud mitigation programs, we’ve built a robust system to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) to help prevent money laundering activity on your program. We handle all BSA/AML requirements for all of our Program Management clients, so you don’t have to. Our team stays up to date on all of the latest compliance regulations and ensures our programs comply. You can rest easy knowing we have you covered.
We will help you structure the user load and use limits to enable better compliance with these laws. While some of them can seem inhibitors to a business, they are in place for the consumers and your company’s security. Compliance protects us all, and not complying with these laws can lead to severe punishments, including fines, the shutdown of the program, and in severe cases, jail time. We also have robust monitoring to catch reportable incidents. Finally, when a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) or Currency Transaction Report (CTR) has to be filed, following the BSA, Cascade handles it, so you don’t have to.
By following the PCI compliance security standards, Cascade keeps your customers’ card data, including all transaction data, secure. From the actual enrollment for the card, every transaction, customer service interaction, and email, our goal is to protect your customers' data. We stay up to date on the latest PCI regulations and keep our technology current to help prevent data breaches. We monitor our systems continually, handle all reporting and administrative actions for your program, so you don’t have to.
For everything related to the safety and security of your program, Cascade provides a truly turn-key solution.
