In particular, the Central Bank recommended that financial institutions, among other things, use technologies such as virtual private networks and multi-factor authentication and monitor and control the actions of users of remote mobile banking. In addition, the Recommendations note that specific organisational and technical measures to ensure information security in organising remote working are contained in the national standard for the security of banking and financial transactions.
