I am a member of a crew which is focused on financial web development. [Moderator removed link which is basically just an ad.] I've just met SQRL and now I wanna know how can we use it in our sphere to keep our data safe.

You can implement a SQRL authentication server as part of your offering. Implement the optional component of Managed Shared Access. See the documentation (at https://www.grc.com/sqrl/sqrl.htm ), a quote from page 14 of https://www.grc.com/sqrl/SQRL_Explained.pdf which is:

Managed Shared Access

The proper way for websites that wish to allow and encourage the sharing of a single account among multiple users is to offer such a facility directly. SQRL specifies and implements a fully articulated and secure facility for this, known as “Managed Shared Access” (MSA). The SQRL Service Provider (SSP) API described later fully supports MSA, and a working implementation can be experimented with using the demonstration site at GRC: https://sqrl.grc.com/msa.
MSA offers flexibility for, say a joint bank account, or a child's bank account where a parent has access as well. Or a case where you have an elder with their child having financial power of attorney.

@eveanastacia,
MSA also provides for complete, secure, and verifiable transfer of account access/control that would be ideal for an organization changing Treasurers or an estate adding, removing, or changing trustees.
