Salt Edge Takes a Firm Stand on Data Security in Open Banking
The following is a statement on open banking’s safety from Salt Edge – a pioneer in providing open banking solutions.
Open banking is literally opening up the access to data that once used to be inaccessible. Since there were no powerful informational campaigns on the perks of open banking and the security it provides to end-users, people aren’t fully understanding how safe it is for them to open-up access to their accounts for enjoying the useful services provided by third-parties. Dmitrii Barbasura, Salt Edge CEO and Co-founder, shares his thoughts on the advantages and the real level of safety for end-users when using open banking.
“Open banking isn’t a new phenomenon. There’ve been similar services based on data sharing up until now. The difference is that it is safer than ever now, under open banking regulations”, says Dmitrii Barbasura.
“The number 1 rule for third-party providers refers to data security. Being accepted to the open banking framework is challenging: every party must implement and prove the existence of the utmost standards of physical security, software tools, and security policies.”
Here are a few reasons why open banking is safe:
- It uses application programming interfaces (APIs) to deliver fast and secure data transfer or to safely initiate payments.
- Account access happens only upon user’s explicit consent.
- Users have full control over the process due to SCA.
“We at Salt Edge have a very strong security awareness culture within the organisation. An ever-expanding number of leading FinTechs, banks, and other financial institutions trust us to deliver Account Information, Payment Initiation, PSD2 Compliance solutions, and others. For us, open banking participants, getting data protection wrong brings commercial, reputational, regulatory, and legal penalties. Getting it right brings rewards in terms of client trust and confidence.” concludes Dmitrii Barbasura.
