When you see that hackers have gained access to some systems you think would be the most secure on the planet, it makes you wonder.

 

Your Bank ?

 

Credit reference agencies ?

 

National Health Service/Doctors records ?

 

UK government records ?

 

I have had conversations with IT contractors who develop systems for financial services companies and they all say thay you can only continually review security, closing any gaps where they are found. But they all say that it is impossible to offer 100% security, because hackers are constantly trying to identify ways to bypass security to access systems. It is how quick you detect it happening and to stop them getting into parts of the system that are highest risk to a company.

 

I can see a day coming when people try to get money from Banks, try to make transactions and fail because Banks systems have been hacked, so no money is showing in accounts. When that happens, you can bet that many who do online Banking will feel insecure and want to return to visiting high street branches, if they are still open.

Have to agree UB, I don't use Internet banking and am not a fan of Contactless Payments, as the cards unless in a special pouch or wrapped in foil can be scanned and £30 a pop taken.
