What is SEC/FINRA?

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) have strict regulations that mandate compliance related to the storage of financial records and electronic communications. SEC Rule 17a-4 and FINRA Rule 4511 strictly instructs financial services organizations and brokerage firms to retain and index their electronic records in an immutable format, that can not be deleted, altered, or overwritten, for a period of minimum 6 years.
