Secure data storage

Com­pared across inter­na­tional stan­dards, Swiss finan­cial insti­tu­tions pro­vide a very high level of secu­rity. Secure com­puter cen­tres and secu­rity sys­tems ensure cus­tomers’ data and finances are stored securely. External inspec­tion bodies and ISO stan­dards guar­antee standardisation.

Secure com­puter centres

Soft­ware and hard­ware alone do not pro­vide suf­fi­ciently secure pro­tec­tion when storing cus­tomer data and finances. Com­puter cen­tres are pro­tected against power cuts, fire, water and intru­sion. Both com­puter and net­work are con­tin­u­ously mon­i­tored, ser­viced and kept up-to-date.

There are strict pro­ce­dures regarding the access internal bank staff has to the com­puter centre and their internal access rights to sen­si­tive data. All employees coming into con­tact with any cus­tomer data for instance are appro­pri­ately trained.

All mea­sures, rule­books and the overall infra­struc­ture are con­tin­u­ously adapted to new con­di­tions, and reg­ular data back-up ensures busi­ness continuity.

External inspec­tion bodies and ISO standards

Finan­cial insti­tu­tions place utmost pri­ority on secure storage of their cus­tomer data, with external inspec­tion bodies and ISO stan­dards guar­an­teeing standardisation.

The Swiss Finan­cial Market Super­vi­sory Authority FINMA and other external inspec­tion bodies check that all data pro­tec­tion laws and all addi­tional guide­lines are com­plied with.

Secure data storage is sub­ject to an ISO stan­dard (ISO 27002). Although com­pli­ance with this ISO stan­dard is not com­pul­sory, it is widely adhered to inter­na­tion­ally, and by Swiss finan­cial insti­tu­tions in particular.

Finan­cial insti­tu­tions use the most up-to-date secu­rity sys­tems to com­pre­hen­sively pro­tect their cus­tomers’ data and finances at any time.
