Malta’s leading bank, Bank of Valletta resumed a number of its services last week after a cyber attack siphoning of some €13 million. The resumption of services follows rigorous overnight testing of the Bank’s IT systems which were successful. 

The Bank once again wants to reassure its clients that customer deposits and customer accounts were in no way affected by this cyber-attack. This unfortunate incident proved that the contingency plans in place and the preventive measures taken by Bank of Valletta were appropriate and that these measures safeguarded the Bank, its customers and stakeholders.

Customers may now once again make use of BOV services through the Bank’s branch network across Malta and Gozo, ATMs, Internet Banking, Mobile Banking and by making use of their BOV cards when effecting purchases. Payments to third parties is currently the only service not yet activated.
