The article focuses on the solutions to allow financial advisers resolve their concerns over data security, compliance regulations and security breaches through the utilization of technology in the U.S. It notes that some advisers, particularly those with larger practices, considers cloud computing as the safest and most cost-effective move to local storage since it allows all files to be stored offsite. Also, it mentions that the growth of customer relationship management (CRM) systems is another component which has raised data security by encapsulating security factors in a single system while increasingly reducing the potential for the kind of breach or error.
