“Our bread-and-butter business originates from credit referencing and scoring, so we work with many financial institutions in that regard,” explains Paul Morgan, Group Head of IT Procurement. “In addition, we are very active in information management in respect to taking data, cleansing that data, and then selling that data back. We are extremely careful when it comes to our clients’ sensitive financial data, with a significant investment in firewalls, tracking devices, and other security measures to thwart hackers. Fortify Static Code Analyzer (SCA) is a critical component of our security arsenal.”
