Securing the Banking Ecosystem 
Breakout Session


In the Banking and Financial sector's ecosystem, IT Security has traditionally played the role of ensuring the availability, confidentiality, and accuracy of all types of customer and customer-related information.

Many solutions have been proposed regarding availability (e.g., immediate access to required personal data), confidentiality (making sure that only authorized persons could access confidential information) and accuracy (making sure that all information is timely and reliable).

However, the evolution of technology has opened a number of new issues. For instance, cloud and service-oriented computing have raised concerns over sharing of personal information, except in circumstances advised to the customer at the time the customer applies for a new product or service. Traditional assurance techniques need a radical rethinking before being applied to the new generation of banking services, as online monitoring and preventive maintenance are gaining importance. Also, online banking has widened the scope for social engineering attacks. A truly secure banking ecosystem is a partnership between the customer, the bank and a number of third parties.

The international break-out session on Securing the Financial and Banking Ecosystem at IEEE DEST-CEE 2012 is aimed at providing a forum to researchers, security practitioners and users for presenting new ideas and comparing their positions on the perspectives of security in the banking ecosystems.

The session is co-located with the Italian panel “Sicurezza dell’Ecosistema Bancario - Securing the Bank Ecosystem” that will put together experts and users from a number of financial institutions in Italy and Switzerland.
