Max and Cybecs Spearhead a New Era of Cybersecurity in Digital Banking


Established in 2000 under the banner of Leumi Card, a subsidiary of Leumi Bank Ltd., Max, with its team of over 1600 dedicated employees, has ascended to prominence as one of Israel’s premier financial institutions. With an impressive record of issuing approximately 3.1 million Visa and MasterCard branded credit cards, Max has garnered a reputation for its diverse portfolio of financial services. This includes an expansive suite of card issuing, acquiring, and processing services, complemented by a myriad of innovative payment and credit solutions.

Understanding Max’s Distinctive Stature in the Digital Financial Realm:

 Max, formerly known as Leumi Card, proudly stands tall, radiating its commitment to unrivaled service and impenetrable security. MAX isn’t just about numbers and transactions; It serves as a trusted pillar amidst numerous digital platforms. Every transaction, every client interaction, every product developed, carries with it the weight of Max’s reputation – a reputation built on innovation, integrity, and an unwavering commitment to securing financial futures. And with this weight comes a myriad of responsibilities, such as ensuring:

  • Unwavering compliance with both financial regulations and the specific stipulations of the FDIC.
  • Regular checks that not only meet but often surpass global industry standards.
  • In-depth training sessions with Max’s developers, focusing on the integral nuances of the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

The Complex Web of Challenges in Modern Digital Transactions:

In today’s hyper-connected world, digital transactions are not just numerical exchanges; they are a fine line of balance between technology and trust. For Max, the challenges in orchestrating this balance are manifold. It’s not just about ensuring smooth transitions; it’s about safeguarding every touchpoint:

  • Guaranteeing the robustness of their expansive web portal, the versatility of applications, and the responsiveness of their IVR system.
  • Relentlessly scanning for and patching vulnerabilities in their Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) protocols.
  • Harnessing the expansive capabilities of OSINT, allowing them to deftly prevent fraudulent activities by cross-referencing vast pools of public data for personal identification verification.
The digital domain, particularly in finance, is like navigating through a minefield. Every step, every decision, carries with it inherent risks. Our partnership with Cybecs has been instrumental in helping us chart a safe path, ensuring the trust our customers place in us is never compromised.
