Here’s how we do it better. Working with banking institutions previously, we have industry knowledge of the specific financial criteria mandated for a financial institution. Other website designers do not need to worry themself about such guidelines. Yet, web design for financial organizations must exercise heightened security, membership access controls, compliance, financial statements, and disclaimers for banking by federal guidelines.
A financial services website must comply with the NCUA guidelines, PCI-DSS, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999, ADA(Americans with Disabilities Act), and more. That means things like encrypting customer information, the timing of electronic disclosures for new digital online customers, announcements of APY(annual percentage yield), and nondiscrimination compliance with Logotype for EHL(equal housing lender) and EOL(equal opportunity lender), to name just a few.
Website compliance for a financial institution is serious business. Don’t get caught with your hand in the cookie jar. Make sure you work with a reputable web designer who has some experience working with financial institution guidelines and federal responsibilities.
