BRI’s Skimming Case: A Blessing in Disguise?

As the banking industry becomes increasingly digitized, banks face new challenges to secure their online banking systems and transactions. Such was the case faced by BRI in March.

News about suspected leakage of customer data broke in the first week of March, but before the bank had time to recover the bank was buffeted a few days later by news of a skimming case that resulted in missing funds from customers’ accounts.

Since the first coverage about the issue appeared on March 12, the number of articles in the 20 most prominent media monitored by Maverick continued to increase and, as seen on Table 1 below, it finally peaked on March 16 with 48 articles. Overall, there was a total of 190 articles on the issue; a significant amount comprising 48% of BRI’s total coverage in March, and about 29% of BRI’s total coverage in Q1 2018.
