For instance, Crowd Valley uses AWS's S3 service, which is designed to provide 99.999999999% durability of objects over a given year. In other words, if you store 100,000 documents in your Crowd Valley Back Office, no more than one document is expected to become corrupted in storage every 1,000,000 years.
The AWS long-term backup and data archiving service, Glacier Vault Lock, is used by the SEC and FINRA to meet their 'Books and Records Rule' requirements for evidential log retention with respect to purchase and sale documents, customer records, associated person records, customer complaints, and certain other matters.
Crowd Valley customers can benefit from the same long-term security of audit trails, database backups, integrated access controls and compliance measures.
