ABC enters new safeguarding technology era

Agricultural Bank of China Limited has made substantial progress in the construction of the video monitoring network system. Recently, ABC Ningbo Branch held the "Opening Ceremony of Ningbo Branch Video Monitoring Center". Mr. Cai Huaxiang, Member of CCP Committee and Vice President of ABC attended the ceremony.

As one of the five pilot branches for the construction of the video monitoring network system across the Bank, Ningbo Branch took the lead in completing the construction of video monitoring center. It is reported that, besides Ningbo Branch, the other four pilot branches of Beijing, Hebei, Fujiang and Guangdong have also finished the construction of their centers. In addition, the 2nd batch of 19 branches will complete network construction at the end of June and the 3rd batch of 13 branches will complete all works by the end of the year. Once all branches complete the network construction, ABC Head Office will build a monitoring center to perform the networking of the whole system, ushering in a new era of safeguarding with technologies.

According to persons in charge of the Security Department of ABC, the whole network system currently consists of nine modules of alarm linkage, access control, smart identification, OA branch console, electronic map, centralized treasury guarding of different areas, video display & control, voice talkback and integrated management. And the system has lots of functions, such as, security management and centralized authorization of the treasury, centralized disposal of security management and customer helpdesk of self-service bank, centralized monitoring and management of all kinds of remote videos of outlets, centralized disposal and reporting level by level, and facilitating the transfer of the role of functional departments from on-site supervision to off-site supervision.

Upon the completion of the video monitoring network system, ABC will realize a major reform in security and internal control management. The former on-site armed treasury guard mode, the necessity of on-site inspection and the lag in emergency disposal will be changed. This will reduce the number of full-time treasury guards, make part-time treasury guards unnecessary, curb guns in use and gun-related cases, and reduce direct cost such as labor cost and intermediate cost such as cost incurred from on-site inspection. It will also improve self-service equipment monitoring network thoroughly to reach the standard, enhance the comprehensive management efficiency of places such as treasury, outlets and self-service banks, improve the emergency command ability in case of sudden events, and truly build an all-round, intelligent, easy and convenient security management system that combines advanced hardware and software technologies. This system will provide relevant business units with services such as remote centralized authorization, off-site audit supervision, and outlet counter service, as well as assistance to public security departments in solving cases, in order to timely prevent and crack down on criminal cases and security incidents.
