Cyber security is a top priority for governments, regulators and private sector organisations around the world. We converge the management of physical, cyber and data-related risks into a central Chief Information Security Officer, who also oversees the financial crime risk mitigation programme. Our overall approach is one of “defence in depth”, combined with employee education and industry collaboration. We keep abreast of techniques and threats as they evolve, in order to develop the appropriate countermeasures.
Data protection and data governance are cornerstones of a customer’s trust in the banking sector, and are also critical enabling factors for innovation in a digital economy. We express this in our promise to our customers:
We will uphold your trust in us by protecting and using your personal data in a responsible manner.
