IBA-DSCI: Security Framework in Indian Banks

We are pleased to inform you that IBA-DSCI (Data Security Council of India) are jointly organizing conference on ‘Security Framework in Indian Banks’. The Conference will be in collaboration with Institute of Development & Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) to bring IT and Banking Industry together to address the security challenges.

Internet Technology has brought about phenomenal transformation in the way transactions are conducted. However, it brings in its wake risks, due to ever increasing threats in the cyberspace, both to organizations that deliver services using these channels, and to the end users who avail themselves of the same. It is no longer the individual hackers, but organized cyber criminals that are the source of such threats, because the financial payoffs in online frauds have substantially increased.

In India, the Government has enacted IT (Amendment) Act, 2008 that mandates body corporates, including banks, to implement reasonable security practices to protect sensitive information. Banks are therefore required to address cyber threats more effectively. The Conference will deliberate on the recent regulatory changes and their impact, issues that affect security of banking security, how security best practices are evolving, etc. The Conference will also deliberate on evolving security architectures that are specifically being designed for the banking industry and global trends in banking security along with DSCI Security Framework will also be discussed.
