When it comes to cybercrime, a majority of institutions that have found themselves in the crosshairs of cybercriminals are those from the banking and financial institutions (BFIs) sector.
Over the years, there have been numerous instances in which hackers have made attempts to breach many banking systems.

Do’s and Don’ts of ATM transactions
Conduct your ATM transactions in complete privacy, never let anyone see you entering your Personal Identification Number (ATM Password)
After completion of transaction ensure that welcome screen is displayed on ATM screen
Ensure your current mobile number is registered with the bank so that you can get alerts for all your transactions
Beware of suspicious movements of people around the ATM or strangers trying to engage you in conversation
Look for extra devices attached to the ATMs that looks suspicious
Inform the bank if the ATM/Debit card is lost or stolen, immediately, report if any unauthorised transaction
Check the transaction alert SMSs and bank statements regularly
If cash is not dispensed the ATM does not display “cash out” please report to the Bank on the number mentioned in the Notice Board
Immediately check your phone for SMS for debit amount
Do not write your PIN on the card, memorise your PIN number
Do not take help from strangers or handover your card to anyone for using it
Do not disclose your PIN to anyone, including bank employees and family members
Do not allow the card to go of your sight when you are making a payment
Avoid speaking on the mobile phone while you are transacting
Researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a quantum communication chip that is 1,000 times smaller than current quantum setups, but offers the same superior security quantum technology is known for.
Most leading security standards used in secure communication methods—from withdrawing cash from the ATM to purchasing goods online on the smartphone—does not leverage quantum technology. The electronic transmission of the personal identification number (PIN) or password can be intercepted, posing a security risk.
Roughly three millimeters in size, the tiny chip uses quantum communication algorithms to provide enhanced security compared to existing standards. It does this by integrating passwords within the information that is being delivered, forming a secure quantum key. After the information is received, it is destroyed along with the key, making it an extremely secure form of communication.
It also needs 1,000 times less space than current quantum communication setups that can be as big as a refrigerator or even take up the space of an entire room or office floor. This opens doors for more secure communication technologies that can be deployed in compact devices such as smartphones, tablets and smart watches. It also lays the foundation for better encryption methods for online transactions and electronic communication.Military-grade communication tech, made cost-effective.
Led by NTU Professor Liu Ai Qun, and Associate Professor Kwek Leong Chuan, the team's findings were published in a leading peer-reviewed journal, Nature Photonics.

Make sure all employees change their passwords every 3 months. Yes, every 3 months. Hassle? Maybe. But we'll take that hassle over the other any day. With every new season comes a new password. #CyberSecurityMonth
