Building Societies: REACH YOUR CLOUD POTENTIAL
Leverage Six Degrees’ specialist knowledge and capabilities to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing, modernising your infrastructure while delivering lower costs and improved security for your members.
Specialist knowledge of the needs of building societies
Six Degrees is a specialist cloud provider for building societies. Our experience of working with mutuals gives us unique insight into the challenges they face: migration into the cloud, modernisation and upgrade, the requirement to demonstrate compliance with FCA guidelines and PRA regulation, and the necessity for class-leading security to protect the interests of members and communities. We fit in with your existing providers with services that optimise your capabilities and reduce your costs, providing you with a roadmap to the cloud for the future.

Cyber Security for Building Societies
Building societies, as with many financial institutions, are coming under intense threat from cyber-attack. According to an IPSOS MORI poll, ‘almost half of businesses (46%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months.’
Managed Detection and Response
Our Managed Detection and Response service enables you to add 24x7x365 protection from a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform that receives data across your platforms. The service is managed by highly trained and certified Security Cleared (SC) CSOC Analysts working in a highly secure environment. Six Degrees also offers an offensive penetration testing service which can determine where the vulnerabilities in your infrastructure exist, and delivering guidance on eliminating them.
Because we work with many finance companies, we apply learning about threats to help defend vulnerabilities on both a proactive and reactive basis. Structured ‘as-a-service’, you can almost instantly add a complete layer of security across your organisation without having to change existing provider contracts, and without the overhead of excessive capital outlay.
Supporting your compliance
At Six Degrees we are constantly monitoring the regulatory environment that you have to operate in. Knowledge of the regulation and compliance load on our building society customers (for example PRA SS2/21) enables us to be able to limit the auditing that they have to perform and allows them to focus on the issues that really matter, such as service and security to their members and communities.
