UK firm manages bank's security info systems

24 January 2014, 13:18

Abuja - Security Technology Group (STG), the United Kingdom based company, has announced a local deal to manage GlobalInfoSwift Nigeria information security systems.

With the partnership deal, STG hopes to provide best-in-class information security management systems in the banking sector.

The partnership supports the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN’s) drive to ensure banks adopt certified information security management systems.

Speaking about the partnership that has been sealed in Lagos, Daniel Britz, Managing Director of STG, said his company had the ability to meet the security system management needs of the Nigerian market.

“We have dealt with bigger clients across the world. Our experience and knowledge gained over the years allows us to provide clients with designated concepts and strategies that will suit both the expectation and as their budget as well,” he said.

“Our strength, manpower, highly skilled personnel, and facilities alongside our innovative ideas have gained us excellent reputation in the competitive market across the globe. We have modernized and integrated systems with predictable life costs due to our operational interruptions,” he added.

Britz explained that the adoption of the information security management system was not just a project with a high level of technology but involves the deployment of facilities such as the access control.

Afolabi Oke, Executive Director of GlobalInfoSwitch, said that partnership would provide the much-needed IT Security system management standard for banks.

“If Nigeria must successfully adopt cashless transactions and compete successfully with other global players, the banking sector must comply effectively with information security management system. This is an initiative critical to the economy in as much as safeguarding the data of the customers and the confidentiality of classified information is concerned,” he said.

He noted that technology experts around the world keep fighting the course of ensuring high standard information management but cybercriminals kept adopting trendy strategies to hack the data of customers.

He stressed that the dangers posed by the hackers will be quite enormous and devastating if there are no constant adoptions of technological initiative aimed at ensuring confidentiality and protection of information.

STG, headquartered in Northamptonshire and with affiliate offices in United Arab Emirates and South Africa, is a specialist supplier of access control peripherals such as readers, credentials, locks, power supplies and complete systems
