Best Practices for Staying Secure in the Cloud for Financial Services

The move to the cloud presents a compelling opportunity for financial institutions to modernize systems, drive innovation, reduce costs, and improve the experience for customers, to name a few of the benefits. But many may not realize that the cloud also provides a way to centralize, streamline, and update your entire cryptographic infrastructure – while improving security and compliance protection, agility, and flexibility.

As your financial services organization makes the move to the cloud, finding the right security model should be a top priority – whether it’s to migrate your entire crypto infrastructure to the cloud or tapping into the cloud to streamline day-to-day security tasks, such as ATM remote key loading.

You no doubt have many questions about the role of the cloud for critical security applications in financial services. Our upcoming three-part webinar series where we’ll focus on financial services and the cloud will provide the insights you need to make informed decisions. Sign up today at futurex.com/webinar.

You’ll hear the latest cloud options to secure and process financial data, how the cloud can meet your stringent requirements, how to best evaluate the cloud, and learn best practices for migration. We’ll empower you with the right questions and information to proceed strategically.

How can the cloud streamline your day-to-day?

Financial institutions must have the ability to securely receive, transmit, and process data. Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization are among the best ways to optimally secure data at rest and in transit, as well as reduce the scope and cost of compliance. Hear why top financial institutions are turning to cloud-based P2PE and tokenization to secure data in transit and at rest.

Rotating encryption keys frequently is vital to maintaining a strong security posture. A fast and efficient cloud-based process for updating ATM and Point-of-Sale (POS) devices remotely limits your exposure in event of a compromise and significantly lowers costs. If you’re still relying on manual processes, it may be time for an upgrade.

Our webinar series will shed light on cloud security

How to Incorporate Cloud-Based HSMs into Your Crypto Infrastructure

January 22, 2020 @ 11:00 a.m. CST

Register: futurex.com/webinar

In this webinar, we’ll answer these questions:

  • What are the best practices and latest technologies in the face of an ever-changing threat landscape and evolving regulatory requirements?
  • What should organizations look for in a cloud cryptographic environment?
  • Which financial industry use cases are best-suited to the cloud, and which still require on-premises HSMs?
  • How can I best support a multi-cloud computing environment?
  • Do have to make a big leap to the cloud or can I take an incremental approach?

Tapping the Cloud for P2PE and Tokenization to Secure PCI Data

February 5, 2020 @ 11:00 a.m. CST

With cyber threats on the rise, financial services organizations and retailers can’t afford to take any chances with data protection and adherence to PCI DSS compliance, especially as they make the move to cloud computing. Tokenization and point-to-point encryption (P2PE) might be your best secret weapons to optimally secure data at rest and in transit, as well as reduce the scope and cost of compliance. You’ll learn how these two technologies protect sensitive data and personally identifiable information (PII) from exposure.

Streamlining Financial Remote Key Loading in the Cloud
