The security of digital transactions is a shared responsibility between banking service providers and users," said BCA President Director, Jahja Setiaatmadja.
Along with the rapid development of information technology, customers’ digital interaction with BCA has also increased. This is followed by the risks of technology crime, so that BCA continues to improve its IT security system. The development of BCA's IT security system is carried out with the aim of protecting data security and ensuring that IT systems can always be ready to serve customer transactions, including preventing and anticipating cyber-crime and fraud potential.
BCA implements security strategies starting from securing networks, applications, computer systems and data. All safeguards that have been carried out are aimed to securing data with the concept of Data Loss Prevention (DLP). To ensure transaction security, BCA applies additional security in the form of two-factor authentication to ensure that application access is performed by authorized persons.
To avoid banking crimes, BCA continues to educate customers to protect personal data, such as not providing PIN, OTP, or confidential and personal information to unauthorized parties. The following tips for transaction security are:
