Italian police to play central role in protecting banking IT assets

28 February 2011  |  6664 views  |  0 Security/Risk

Italian payments processor SIA-SSB is partnering with the national police to develop a collaborative plan to prevent and combat criminal and terrorist attacks on critically important banking and finance IT systems.

The agreement, with an initial duration of three years, was entered into in compliance with an Interior Ministry Decree, which identified SIA-SSB's role in providing payment card processing, payments systems, capital markets and network services for the nation's banks.

From the operational perspective, a direct link will be activated between SIA-SSB and the Postal and Communications Police's CNAIPIC - National Computer Crime Centre for the Protection of Critical Infrastructures.

The agreement provides a central role for the state police in the protection of IT services within the domestic financial sector.
