Kashef

With emergence of new technologies, many institutions and organizations at global level have tackled with the question of information security. However, creating a coherent organized structure for maintenance and upgrading of data protection at institutions with critical vision and mission relying on vital data infrastructure like banks and credit institutions has always been an on-going challenge. In such structures there are governance and executive arms that struggle to achieve these targets by setting up and implementing frameworks, security requisites and creating safe infrastructures for data output and critical data interaction. A significant requirement is a need for a cluster of groups capable of responding to computer security events in cyberspace. To fulfil these objectives, CBI, pursuant to a directive in October 2012, by Money & Credit Counsel, established in the form of a corporate body, a center for Banking Emergency Network Security Control (KASHEF) on Mar. 8, 2014 to work side-by-side with the Banks System Security Help Center in providing data shield protection against internal and external threats. KASHEF is tasked with the mission of putting in place an integrated information security management in the banking system through a unified window under the CBI supervision for all-inclusive management of security events, design of safe infrastructures, defining information security prerequisites, monitoring and audit, dissemination of awareness and bringing down the level of security risks and cyber threats in electronic banking systems of the entire enterprises active in such domains as banks, financial and credit institutions and non-integrated money market by interaction with the country’s law enforcement, security and judicial authorities as well as collaboration with state and private sectors, national computer help center and its counterparts at regional and international level.
