    RBI Guidelines

    How Safetica Can Help

    Protection of Customer Data

    According to the RBI Framework, banks are responsible for protecting customer information, whether it's with the customer or a third-party vendor.

    • Safetica combines data classification, data loss prevention (DLP) and insider threat protection to establish a highly secure environment that allows banks to operate efficiently.
    • Safetica helps banks set clear policies to protect sensitive data from accidental or intentional activities.

    Data Loss Prevention Strategy

    The RBI requires banks to have a data loss / data leak prevention strategy to protect sensitive business and customer information.

    • Safetica allows banks to perform different activities like handling security policies, configuring automated data classification, managing your organizational workspace, and investigating data security incidents into a central dashboard.

    Secure Use of Removable Media

    The RBI requires banks to have a policy for securely using removable media on different devices, including limiting the types of media and information that can be transferred or copied. Secure erasure of data after use is also mandatory.

    • Safetica enables monitoring and management of removable devices, including USB storage devices, printers, and ports like WiFi and Bluetooth. It also allows you to restrict the use of unauthorized portable peripherals and media.

    Real-time Threat Defense and Management

    The RBI advocates for banks to consider whitelisting of internet websites/ systems.

    • Safetica allows you to create custom lists of web addresses. Access to domains and URLs on these lists will be blocked.
    • Safetica quickly responds to incidents and potential risks by automatically detecting and evaluating suspicious or abnormal behavior.

    Prevent Use of Unauthorized Software

    Banks should maintain an updated, and preferably centralized, inventory of authorized/ unauthorized software.

    • Through the Shadow IT feature, banks can conveniently review the software catalog of the company and keep track of any undesirable applications. Our intelligent analysis and automated risk detection make this task effortless.
