Security and safety are important issues to every one of us, but never is this more important than when it comes to our money and finances. The banking and finance industry faces unique challenges when it comes to surveillance. Security issues such as theft and fraud are real threats that affect customers, employees and the public in general, and financial institutions often must meet strict regulations when implementing security protocols. Having a plan of action is not an option, but a necessity for banks and financial establishments.

So the question becomes, how does one effectively protect their assets and customers? The simple answer is by utilizing a system that provides comprehensive video coverage with a 360-degree view of common areas, creating real-time situational awareness that can also work with analytics software to provide business intelligence. By increasing awareness, there is greater capability for a proactive approach to financial and personal security.

Fraud and cyber crime may often grab the headlines, but Oncam understands that creating a safe environment for customers and staff remains a high priority for all banks and financial institutions. According to the FBI, there are still more than 5,000 bank robberies committed with $38 million stolen.
