San Francisco - GuardianEdge Technologies Inc. has released a white paper examining the information security objectives set forth in the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council's Information Security Booklet (FFIEC Handbook) and how enterprise encryption technology can assist financial institutions in complying with the data protection requirements of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.Nearly 26,000 banks, credit unions and other depository financial institutions must adhere to strict federal guidelines for protecting privacy of and tracking access to customer information, or risk criminal and civil penalties.

Information security and network IT managers in these institutions are challenged daily with controlling the confidentiality, accessibility, integrity and accountability of financial and personal data records. Encryption is the fundamental enabling technology that enables institutions to prevent data exposure and achieve ongoing compliance with regulatory requirements.
