Due to the varied criminal activity that happens 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 card processors and merchants. These regulations can change often and staying on top of them is key in getting ahead of criminal activity. That’s why Cascade FinTech takes BSA/AML compliance and PCI-DSS compliance so seriously, and why all of Cascade FinTech’s Team members are specifically trained and certified regulatory compliance for card programs.
What is BSA/AML?
The Bank Secrecy Act, or BSA, is a US law that requires financial institutions to do their part in assisting the US Government in thwarting money laundering in the US. For this reason, the law is also known as the Anti-Money Laundering law. It consists of a various regulations that financial institutions are required to follow. Cascade FinTech’s team of experts ensures your program adheres to these BSA/AML compliance laws.
What is PCI?
The payment card industry has created a set of data security standards (officially called PCI-DSS) that are 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 FinTech is PCI Certified as a Level 1 Service Provider, not only for your customers’ protection, but for yours as well.
