Some safety measures conducted by the banking institutions include:
Regular tests of the system to ensure its reliability

Provision of internet security arrangements to ensure a secure infrastructure

Usage of a number of security technologies such as encryption, firewalls, automatic log-off and monitoring tools

Installation of system to detect and disable attacks from hackers

Undertake a periodic review every 6 months to assess possible risks and detect possible weakness in the banking institution's risk management system
