Encryption of customer reports to meet compliance requirements at Bank Hapoalim
Compliance requirements at Bank Hapoalim require that documents are protected against changes when reporting to customers. Tests revealed that the 3-Heights™ PDF to PDF/A Converter is able to guarantee extremely high conversion quality.
Compliance requirements at Bank Hapoalim require that documents are protected against changes when reporting to customers. To meet this requirement, Bank Hapoalim sought a software solution that converts documents into PDF format in batch tasks without any loss in quality and then encrypts them, ensuring that no changes can be made retroactively. Other criteria included small file sizes and CLI compatibility.
Tests revealed that the 3-Heights® PDF to PDF/A Converter is able to guarantee extremely high conversion quality, with almost no additional storage space required after conversion. These aspects, and the stability of the software in batch processing, persuaded the bank to use the conversion tool offered by PDF Tools AG.
This new solution ensures that annual reports sent by Bank Hapoalim to its customers in Switzerland and Luxembourg are able to meet important auditing criteria. Use of the 3-Heights® PDF to PDF/A Converter guarantees that Bank Hapoalim’s PDF documents are protected against retroactive changes.
The existing processes needed no modification in the implementation of this solution, since the PDF components could be easily integrated as a downstream batch process.
The integration was carried out on an ongoing basis in a report batch process in UNIX. The 3-Heights® PDF to PDF/A Converter was integrated using Bourne Shell Scripting. As the final batch process, it converts the documents into PDF format and then encrypts the files.
