Intisari interview: security of internet banking


I was interviewed in Intisari magazine (December 2005 issue) on the security of Internet Banking. (See cover page on the left. "Transaksi aman Bank Internet, halaman 142.)

In the interview I said that the security of Internet Banking is already good enough. What do you think? Posted by Picasa

What about phishing and so called identity theft and fraudulent transactions?

Bruce Schneier argues that "To mitigate that risk, we need to concentrate on detecting and preventing fraudulent transactions. We need to make the entity that is in the best position to mitigate the risk to be responsible for that risk. And that means making the financial institutions liable for fraudulent transactions."

What have Indonesian financial institutions done to mitigate the risk?

I think the problem is not with online security, the problem is with educating the users.

Classic problem, sir.

It's not software, it's not hardware, it's brainware.

68%™ security failures are because of human errors
