Report Confidentiality Labelling

26.02.2021

Clearstream Banking1 is continuously reviewing its service offer to guarantee the highest security standards. To maintain this, Clearstream Banking would like to inform customers that effective

July 2021

it will add a “_Confidential” suffix to file-based reports (for example, Report.csv will change to Report_Confidential.csv) to highlight the sensitivity of the enclosed information. This applies to reports directed to end users (for example, file types “xls(x)” or “csv”). System-to-system communication will not be affected by this change.

Impact to customers

The main impact to will be in the naming conventions used in reports that are invoked by customers in the Vestima/VestimaPRIME platforms. For example, if a customer were to invoke their Statement of Holdings:

  • Previously, it would have been labelled: StatementOfHoldings.csv;
  • Going forward, it will now be labelled: StatementOfHoldings_Confidential.csv.

Should a customer have any downstream activities reliant on any of their Vestima/VestimaPRIME reports, the possible effects of this change should be considered.
