GT Bank has established a data center to provide increased security for the bank and its clients.
The bank, awarded the Technology Bank of the Year 2014 and 2015 as part of its 10th anniversary in Ghana, wants to stay ahead of competition with the inauguration of the center.
In line with its commitment to use technology to drive change in the financial and measure up to best international practice, the bank has invested in an off-site Data Processing Centre that amongst its functions will act as a backup to an IT infrastructure with its own in-built backup system in the primary data at the bank’s Head Office.
This will ensure that in case of any disaster or unforeseen circumstances, the bank can have reliable back up of its data.
Managing Director of the bank Lekan Sanusi told Starr Business that “disaster can strike at any time without giving you prior notice. We are therefore showing our preparedness in event of disaster.
“The IT infrastructure are engines and anything could just happen. It could just be a cable that’s not functioning. So if there is any problem at our head office nothing happens to our system, we automatically switch to the back up and then there is also this tertiary back up that will seamlessly feed into the system.”
