In an important milestone, we are proud to announce that Marigold Engage+ has successfully completed the rather rigorous Hellios Financial Supplier Qualification System (FSQS) certification process – a benchmark used by major UK banks and financial institutions when selecting suppliers.
This key achievement represents another stride forward in our commitment to best-in-class security and compliance.
What is FSQS?
FSQS is a community of financial institutions including banks, building societies, insurance companies and investment services, collaborating to agree a single standard for managing the increasing complexity of vendor and third-party information needed to demonstrate compliance to regulators, policies and governance controls.
Accreditation requires suppliers to be audited against FSQS requirements in the areas of: Information Security Management, Business Continuity, Financial, Insurance, Health & Safety, IT Security, Anti-Bribery, Recruitment, Operational Risks, Fraud, GDPR and the DPA, Responsible Business Governance, Environmental and Sustainability.
What Does Accreditation Mean For our Marigold Engage+ and Our Customers?
As financial, coupled with data protection regulations become increasingly more complex, it’s vital that businesses implement a standardized, validated, structured and comprehensive approach to compliance.
At Marigold Engage+, we have compliance at our very core, and that is why we have strived to attain this FSQS accreditation – to show our unwavering commitment to responsible business practices, data protection, and compliance with regulations.
As an accreditation that is used by some of the financial sector’s biggest customers of digital services it provides our customers with not just confidence, but built-in proof of compliance for internal and external regulatory inquiries while being aware that they are operating with a fully registered FSQS-accredited firm.
