In 2018-2019, Mail Bank’s cybersecurity service prevented 17 from thousands of different cyber attacks, including web-based attacks and attacks on the infrastructure and internal bank systems, using malicious emails and programs.

According to Stanislav Pavlunin, Vice President, Security Director of Post Bank, if a year ago most of the attacks were associated with the infection of banks' information systems with viruses and money withdrawal, now the trend is changing to customer attacks - the emphasis has shifted to social engineering.

“All banks see a surge in social engineering, and the growth of this type of fraud over the year was 15-20%. On average, we are confronted every day with several dozen cases of cyber fraud using social engineering methods, ”said Stanislav Pavlunin.

To counteract attempts of such fraud, Pochta Bank introduced a number of the latest IT solutions, including the SecureBank system. According to the press service of the bank, the system ensures the security of online payments and allows you to detect "hacks" and "infections" of client devices. This helps to prevent theft of up to one million rubles a week.

In addition, Pochta Bank was the first among Russian banks to start implementing a multi-channel system based on a software solution for the SAS antifraud platform. The project is carried out jointly with the company GlowByte Consulting. Thanks to the introduction of the first module of the platform since December last year, it was possible to save about 150 million rubles from client cards from fraudsters.
