Safebank- Foundations of Security in Banks 2022

Secfense sponsorem Safebank – Fundamenty Bezpieczeństwa Banków 2022

Safebank – Foundations of Security in Banks 2022 is a one-day event bringing together cybersecurity experts from the banking and financial services industry in Poland to discuss pressing issues facing modern financial institutions. This year’s conference will feature presentations on topics like new regulations, such as the DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act) regulation, but also the development of information exchange systems, without which it is impossible to avoid attempts to use the financial system for money laundering or ordinary credit fraud.

Working together

The security of the financial system is one of the top priorities for banks and other financial institutions. This area is also one where the banking sector works collectively to build a stable, resilient infrastructure that can withstand both criminal attacks and attempts at destabilization by hostile states or groups. Given today’s dynamic technological landscape and the increasingly sophisticated nature of cyber threats, ensuring financial security has never been more important.

Secfense is a proud sponsor of the Foundations of Security in Banks 2022 event in Warsaw.

The importance of raising awareness about cybersecurity risks

Banks, regulators, and ordinary consumers agree on one thing: ensuring the safety of using financial services should be taken into account at every stage of the design, operation, and development of IT services and products. Unfortunately, cyber awareness of everyday online users often does not keep up with the development of threats in the cyber world.

Less than 30% of Poles feel joint responsibility for the security of financial electronic services, while almost 75% of Poles would transfer all responsibility for the effects of possible fraud to banks, claiming that they are the most important link in security.

Testimonials

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
