Data and security

Why do you need to share customer data across the HSBC Group?

As more and more of our customers live, travel and trade internationally, we're always looking for better ways to help you bank safely - wherever you are in the world. Our global systems and processes work by sharing data and customer information across borders to prevent financial crime. You may only bank in one country/region but we have a commitment to protect your account globally. Therefore we need to share customer data across all parts of HSBC Group.


What will you be doing with data? How will it be store and protected?

We'll use this information to protect you, and ourselves, from financial crime. We take our obligation to protect your data very seriously. All the information you provide will be subject to HSBC Group's data and security standards to ensure its protection. We'd like to reassure you that your information will only be used for your protection and won't be passed to any third parties for marketing purposes.
