The United States is determined to confront illicit fentanyl traffickers, including by exposing them and preventing them from accessing and exploiting the international financial system. Today, we are designating Mexican-based drug trafficker Jose Angel Rivera Zazueta and his two associates. These individuals used precursor chemicals to manufacture and smuggle fentanyl and other illicit synthetic drugs into the United States.
Illicit synthetic drugs pose a grave threat to the health and security of the people of the United States and other countries. Foreign-sourced illicit synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, remain the deadliest drug threat to the American people. The CDC estimates that more than 100,000 Americans died of a drug overdose in 2021, with two-thirds of fatal overdoses involving synthetic opioids.
Today’s action is part of a whole-of-government effort to disrupt and dismantle the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate the illicit fentanyl supply chain and other illicit drug trafficking.
AdvisorVault's expertise in 17a-4 data archiving has joined forces with Compliant Workspace's consolidated 365 Service® to provide FINRA firms with a fully compliant and secure solution for migrating onto Microsoft 365.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 16, 2023 (Newswire.com)
AdvisorVault, the experts in 17a-4 data archiving, partners with Compliant Workspace to help FINRA firms get on Microsoft 365.
Today, many FINRA firms want to move their operations to the Microsoft 365 Cloud but are worried how compliant they will be, specifically with rule 17a-4 and its email and data retention demands. They also need to meet FINRA's cybersecurity requirements. Compliant Workspace is a perfect fit for them with its fully secured, fully protected solution out-of-the-box - AdvisorVault is happy to partner with them.
Microsoft 365 makes sense for FINRA firms, especially for smaller firms since it is a complete platform that gives employees everything needed to do their jobs. While it is a remarkable piece of technology, by default most cloud services are not 17a-4 compliant and won't be able to provide the FINRA letters that your firm will need. So a special kind of D3P cloud provider is required; one that understands the unique compliance demands of firms such as broker-dealers.
"We designed Compliant Workspace specifically for companies needing a higher level of security and protection in the cloud; our Consolidated 365 Service has built-in features making FINRA firms immediately 17a-4 compliant when they migrate their office to Microsoft 365 with us. We are excited to partner with AdvisorVault," says Patrick Lonz, President of Compliant Workspace.
