Finance & Banking

The almost total digitalization of branches, open banking and the expansion of the range of services available to customers has changed (and continues to transform) the area of attack.

The reference scenario

The "traditional" bank, with over-the-counter transactions, is evolving: branches are turning into service hubs to manage value-added relational activities and more complex operations, and represent new points of contact between customers and consultants. New sector focuses revolve around artificial intelligence, cloud, big data or fintech.

Security must accompany this evolution and adapt to the "digital revolution".

The need to keep existing technological systems functioning and to adapt buildings to new trends and local regulations, drives banks to implement activities aimed at preventive maintenance, limiting the obsolescence of the existing security systems, and performing an evolutionary maintenance to adapt them to new requirements.

Alongside physical protection of ATMs from attacks, banks from thefts and robberies, and executive offices from unauthorized access, cybersecurity plays a key role.

Protection of sensitive data (customers, confidential documents, etc.) and full accessibility to financial transactions via home banking are the new assets to protect, in an era where phishing, BEC (Business Email Compromise) and malware attacks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated.

Moreover, with the Coronavirus emergency, managing access to branches has become a fundamental issue, as it must guarantee the customers’ and employees’ safety (whilst preventing the formation of queues and gatherings).

In 2019, a total of 2,976 reports concerning phishing pages were received and handled: about one third concerned phishing sites against bank customers, often with a multinational presence. About 80 banks were involved.

Protecting the banking section against physical risks

The Finance & Banking sector is looking for solutions and skills to protect physical and digital assets alike.

Axitea's advanced video surveillance and video analysis services work to keep customers and employees, branches & ATMs and buildings safe and protected against vandalism.

The functions extend to performance enhancement: they can be used to assess and improve the branch performance, thanks to people counting and occupancy/queue length video analysis functions, thus improving customer satisfaction.

Access control, video monitoring and intrusion detection systems prevent unauthorized access and theft of physical assets. Axitea is in charge of designing, integrating, implementing and servicing these systems.

Body temperature measuring services grant access to the branch, while fully respecting the safety of workers and customers, and avoiding the creation of queues or disruptions.

Protecting sensitive data

Digital assets are the most valuable asset of a player in the banking market.

For customer sensitive data and financial transaction security, Axitea offers monitoring and protection services for networks, workstations (PCs, servers), e-mail traffic and - in this period that has seen a big increase in WFH - secure remote connections via VPN.

Among the main solutions, there are anti-DDoS (Denial of Service) services to ensure optimal functionality of home banking portals and prevent interruptions and slowdowns in the provision of online services.

Lastly, our consulting services, provided through a team of specialized consultants, verify and implement sensitive data management systems compliant with the latest privacy / GDPR regulations, including the provision of high quality training courses and awareness-raising programs on multiple topics (GDPR Privacy, Cyber Security, training for working from home, ...).
