Proactive security solutions for your institute

Security is, and will remain, an important strategic topic for financial institutions, in no small part because it is a key factor in their business success. After all, the banking sector pays large amounts of money every year to combat the criminal energy of anonymous lawbreakers, who put their knowledge about bank vulnerability to very successful use. Physical attacks alone – such as ram raids on cash systems, ATM robberies, etc. – cost European banks €33 million in 2010 [1]. The effect is always the same, irrespective of whether the crimes involve skimming attacks, which still rank as the top threat with 10,497 reported cases, or safe-breaking: banks suffer not only financial losses, but also a major loss of confidence among their customers and partners – very serious consequences indeed.

Unfortunately, precautionary measures are often not taken until it is too late and the economic loss has occurred. In 2010, losses of this kind in Europe amounted to over €300 million [2]. In order to guarantee business continuity, satisfy customers and win back their trust, it is vital for financial institutions to keep pace with the latest developments.

When it comes to mastering these challenges and implementing the relevant measures, financial institutions are finding Wincor Nixdorf to be an expert partner who will look after all of their needs. In the final analysis, Wincor Nixdorf's ProTect provides banks with greater security – faster and, oftentimes, proactively. The ProTect portfolio comprises the entire bandwidth of consulting services, hardware, software, and managed services. Ad hoc measures are no longer enough; end-to-end security solutions are the order of the day. That is why existing systems are utilized, complemented in a sensible manner, and integrated with each other in order to combine all the information that is available throughout the infrastructure. As a result, a protective shield is erected against a wide array of threats. The focus remains firmly on the three 'R's: risk analysis (through controlling); risk minimization (through the use of components and systems); and risk control (through the establishment of correlations between the systems).
