Premiere at Security Essen 2024: Bank and Savings Bank Day

Security Essen 2024 Bank and Savings Bank Day

Bank security is one of the key topics of Security Essen 2024 and on September 19, the “Day of Banks and Savings Banks” showcases practical solutions for financial institutions.

Why the Bank and Savings Bank Day at Security Essen?

Recent events have underlined the urgent need for action in this area.

“With the right measures, the number of explosive attacks in some regions of Germany – Julia Jacob, Project Manager at Security Essen, states – has been reduced by up to 80 percent. Our experts will showcase the most promising options, products, and strategies during this event.”

Among others, these insiders share their knowledge at the debut of Bank and Savings Bank Day:

Thomas Stieff from the Federal Criminal Police Office will kick off the event. He’ll introduce the “German Initiative to Reduce Attacks on ATMs,” a project where the Federal Police, Federal Ministry of the Interior, insurers and other stakeholders collaborate to significantly reduce explosive attacks on ATMs through innovative protective measures.

Sven Bertelmann from the Bundesbank follows with insights on “Experiences with Ink-Dye Banknotes“. These systems color cash in the event of an attack in order to make it unusable and thus reduce the incentive to commit a crime.

• At 11 a.m., several experts will discuss how banks can stay ahead of criminals. They will focus in particular on the importance of European standards that assess the resistance of products to mechanical, electronic and cyber attacks. Among others, panelists include Detlef Lücke, member of CEN/TC 263/WG 3 “High Security Locks” and Falko Adomat, liaison member of CEN/TC 33/WG 7 “Intrusion Protection”.

What else

Trade visitors can look forward to five elevator pitches from 11:30 am. Here, companies will briefly present their innovative products for even more protection in financial institutions. These include new energy-absorbing modules against explosives, the first high-speed door in resistance class RC4, high-security safe locks and innovations that can be controlled remotely and rely on AI.

The Bank and Savings Bank Day will take place in Hall 6. Admission is free for fair visitors. All presentations will be interpreted live on-site into English.
