ATLANTA, June 24, 2019 – Porter Keadle Moore (PKM – www.pkm.com) announced today that AI focused fintech, DataSeers, has selected the firm to conduct its cyber resiliency and vendor management analysis for SOC 2 reporting. PKM is an accounting and advisory firm that serves public and private financial institutions, technology companies, entrepreneurial small businesses and craft breweries.
To proactively meet its financial institution customers’ stringent evaluation of third-party providers, DataSeers recognized the need for transparent, independent reporting on its internal security protocols, to include secure management of client data and strict adherence to internal procedures and controls. DataSeers selected PKM based on the firm’s proven expertise in working with both financial institutions and fintechs alike.
Specializing in the banking and payments sectors, DataSeers helps financial institutions of all sizes sort and “see” through the convoluted nature of their data, allowing them to make smarter decisions for their customers, employees, and stakeholders.
“We were drawn to PKM as they are truly a relationship-oriented firm, and the team has been instrumental to us as we navigate the regulatory and operational complexities of today’s financial services marketplace,” said Adwait Joshi, Chief Seer and founder of DataSeers. “With a deep understanding of the perspectives of financial institutions and the companies that serve them, PKM represents an ideal advisory partner that can scale with us as we continue to grow.”
“Today’s banks and credit unions are becoming increasingly selective when evaluating possible fintech partners, especially those with access to their transaction and/or customer data,” said Mike Morris, Partner with Porter Keadle Moore. “Financial institutions face tremendous regulatory and compliance pressures and that extends to organizations like DataSeers as well, making it imperative that they clearly demonstrate a dedication to providing secure internal security procedures and controls while offering rigorous protection for the data in their care.”
DataSeers is a FinTech headquartered in Alpharetta, GA that works in the banking and payments sector and, as the name suggests, has a goal of helping its clients see through their data. Data, which is the lifeblood of an organization, is often siloed and segregated, making it impossible to make sense of. DataSeers’ FinanSeer appliance takes away this pain point by efficiently handling multiple data sources with ease, co-relating the data and providing crisp, actionable intelligence. Making use of various AI algorithms and propriety processes, FinanSeer cleans, homogenizes, ingests, labels, and augments incoming data and helps with data organization by providing a full suite of products across its client’s business verticals: Reconciliation, Compliance, Fraud, and Analytics.
