Banking and finance are way out of my area of experience, but physical
dangers aside, I would be very surprised if there are not some regulatory
requirements in SOX or 31 CFR that cover security requirements for systems
used in US financial transactions, and if your systems are handling overseas
transfers, there would be all the countries on the other end of the wire
that may have their own regs, such as the UK's Data Protection Act. Not
every product regulatory certification is about physical injury.
