Securing daily payments

The authorities are creating backup arrangements to secure daily payments in the event that serious disruptions of society or emergency conditions would prevent the use of normal payment systems. 

If a bank were to suffer a serious long-term disruption in its operations, its customers’ account and card services could be handled in the new backup account system being established. In addition, these measures include securing payment traffic between banks.
