Show Notes

Saxo Bank became the first bank in the world to earn the Cloud Security Alliance STAR Level 2 Attestation and Trusted Cloud Provider accreditation.

This milestone in the bank’s technology aspirations means Saxo Bank qualifies for and adheres to the highest and most comprehensive principles in terms of transparency, privacy, security and harmonization of standards across its IT systems, services and infrastructure that supports the business and different client segments from back-office systems to open APIs. The CSA STAR Level 2 attestation is verified and validated by a third-party auditor.

The admission to the CSA and STAR Level 2 attestation demonstrates Saxo’s commitment to holistic security and is set to further accelerate the bank’s growth as a capital markets solutions provider for partners looking to run their investment infrastructure as a Service.
