Our Compliance Program

Compliance and risk management processes and controls are critical components for the success and sustainability of any organization, regardless of its size or industry. We at Kotani Pay understand the vital role of maintaining legal and regulatory adherence, safeguarding assets, and ensuring the overall well-being of the business.


Risk Management processes and controls

risk management

Compliance refers to the adherence to laws, regulations, and standards set by governing bodies and industry associations. In today's business world, compliance is more important than ever, with companies facing increasing scrutiny and potential legal action for non-compliance.

Compliance is not just a legal obligation, but also a critical component of risk management and reputation management. Failure to comply with regulations can result in hefty fines and legal penalties, as well as damage to a company's image and brand.

It is imperative to emphasize that Kotani Pay adheres to stringent compliance standards, including SOC 2, PCI, and DSS. We have implemented robust policies to ensure the protection of client data and have established clear guidelines for the appropriate handling, processing, and storage of such data.

As part of complying with the regulatory framework, we are currently in the process of applying for an FSP License with the FSCA.

Impact on Businesses

Compliance affects businesses of all sizes and industries, from startups to multinational corporations. Non-compliance can lead to financial losses, legal disputes, and damage to a company's reputation.

On the other hand, a culture of compliance can lead to improved risk management, increased customer trust, and a positive brand image. Companies that prioritize compliance are also better positioned to adapt to changing regulations and industry standards.
