37% rural youth sans Internet access: Study
To strengthen physical security and surveillance and increase the efficiency of incident response, State Bank of India has decided to hook about 6,000 of its ‘critical and high-value’ branches across the country to a central monitoring system (CMS).
To achieve integrated monitoring, India’s largest bank will divide the 6,000 identified branches, spread across 14 circles, into 5 clusters. As at March-end 2015, the bank had 16,333 branches.
Facilities in each cluster will be remotely monitored 24x7x365 from the CMS for detecting any eventuality such as fire, theft, intruder detection, burglary, vandalism, and unauthorised activity.
