Maximus Ametorgoh, a Digital Marketing Strategist, has emphasized the importance of banks giving priority to the data security of their online banking customers.
This, he believes, will help to reduce the number of cyber-attacks that occur.
He points out that a weak online banking platform has the potential to disrupt the economic growth of individual customers and the entire nation.
In an interview with Citi Business News, Maxwell Ametorgoh called on banks to regularly update their digital infrastructure as a means of curbing incidents of cybercrime.
“The banks must also make sure that they are also setting up much-secured platforms and gateways for their customers because if you are doing a lot of digitalization; security is very important when it comes to platforms usage, privacy protection,” he said.
“People’s security cannot be guaranteed if there’s no data security. If your platform is very vulnerable to hacking it means you cannot protect people’s private data. So the banks must ensure that all the software, platforms and servers, configuration layers they use are top-notch and make sure these are constantly maintained,” he added.
