Armenian banks were not subjected to hacker attacks – central bank says

YEREVAN, November 22, /ARKA/. Armenia’s Central Bank said today it did not receive reports from local commercial banks about being subjected to hacker attacks.

"At this moment we do not have information about hacker attacks on Armenian banking system. This was confirmed by the banks at the request of the Central Bank," the regulator said in a statement.

The Central Bank stressed that Armenia-based banks have installed the best technology and international experience to ensure the reliability of the systems administered by the regulator and the consumer sector.

The Central Bank advised that cardholders once again look through the safety regulations concerning the use of ATMs and POS - terminals. -- 0--
