Industry Overview The business landscape of BFSI Industry is quickly evolving. Around the world, Financial Services Industry has been outperforming the general economy. A combination of regulatory & competitive reasons in new markets, have addressed the ever-growing consumer demand for convenient services delivery, banks & financial institutions have embraced new technology in both the front and back office, often through integration with legacy systems. Information security now demands a significant level of attention from organizations. The Banking & Financial Sector, today is in the midst of an IT revolution. Many are now striving to modernize their IT infrastructure in order to make their operations simultaneously more responsive to business drivers and more cost efficient. Research has shown time and again that computer frauds occur mainly due to weaknesses in internal control systems that facilitate unauthorized / manipulated inputs by extending due dates on loans, changing names and addresses of clients, etc. In a computerized environment, software attacks by computer criminals through Trojan Horses, Viruses, Worms, Salamis and Logic Bombs, etc. can paralyze installations or destroy systems. Maintenance of security in a computerized environment is therefore a major concern and challenge for bankers today. The key aspects of electronic information-related security are: o Confidentiality (making information available only to authorized users) o Integrity (information received appearing exactly as that sent or stored) o Availability (information stored / transmitted over communication networks being available whenever required, to the extent desired, within specified time limits) o Authenticity (implementing systems for establishing the bonafide of parties in an electronic transaction), and, o Non-Reputability (ensuring that the parties cannot deny authorizing a transaction or sending / receiving messages over the Internet). How one can make a shift from paper to electronic? Banks & financial institutions can now take a full advantage of the mushrooming e-commerce market.

Conclusion-Why BFSI should shift from paper to electronic: Reliable authentication is imperative for financial institutions engaging in any form of electronic banking or commerce. The success of a particular authentication tool or methodology depends on more than the technology; it depends on appropriate policies, procedures and controls. An effective authentication method should be implemented on an enterprise-wide basis, have customer acceptance, reliable performance, scalability to accommodate growth, and interoperability with existing systems and future plans. The level of authentication used by the financial institution in a particular application should be appropriate to the level of risk of that application.
