The banking sector has historically been the main user of security systems, with sites classified among the most secure. The evolution of crime has led the banking and financial sector to combine traditional physical security with more specific defence against cyber-attacks: in fact, eliminating any possible risk of fraud, data theft/corruption, service and functionality interruptions is essential to be able to maintain the maximum efficiency and guarantee business continuity.
Based on risk analyses, security systems in credit institutions must meet very strict criteria. Here are some of main risk situations:
- Vandalism and fraud at ATMs
- Protection of banking operations
- Access permissions
The full awareness that the phenomenon of robberies touches very sensitive aspects of people’s safety, as well as daily operations, has led the banking system to pursue the strengthening of new forms of collaboration with public order institutions and, above all, to direct efforts a more effective prevention through the progressive implementation of modern security technologies, and innovative information and training tools for employees.
