Dock9 is pleased to announce we have attained the Hellios Stage 2 certification for the Financial Services Qualification System (FSQS). The FSQS accreditation is used by over 20 major banks and insurance companies including the Bank of England, Bank of
Ireland, BNP Paribas, RSA, Virgin Money, Nationwide Building Society, LV, Aldermore, TSB, Shawbrook, Santander, Masthaven, Metro Bank, Lloyds Banking Group and NFU Mutual to validate the compliance of their service providers.
In an increasingly complex regulatory environment the FSQS provides a rigorous, standardised mechanism for financial institutions to manage supplier compliance assurance information in the following areas:
- Business community
- Insurance and third-party certification
- Health and safety
- Environmental and sustainability
- IT Security
- Operational risks
- Responsible business governance
The FSQS accreditation is updated yearly to ensure all suppliers keep up with the latest legislation and security methodologies.
Mark Lusted, Managing Director of Dock9, commented “Our FSQS Stage 2 certification represents an important milestone for Dock9. As an accreditation used by some of the largest purchasers of digital services in the financial sector, it underpins our commitment to responsible business practices, data security and regulatory compliance. Moreover, it gives our existing clients ready-made proof of compliance for internal and external regulatory oversight and our prospect clients can engage with Dock9 safe in the knowledge that they are working with a fully registered FSQS accredited business, enabling simpler supplier on-boarding."
