Rosbank organisational measures
Rosbank operates in regular mode. We are closely monitoring the epidemic evolution of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and implementing all necessary organizational and precautious measures to ensure business continuity in interest of clients, partners and employees.1
In connection with COVID-19, the bank organized a Crisis cell led by CEO, which works in close collaboration with Societe Generale Crisis group. For critical functions of the bank, a business continuity process system is put in place, based on the teams split localized in different buildings or working remotely at home.
Our remote access meets all security requirements and the channel capacity is sufficient. Significant part of employees who can perform their work remotely are transferred to the remote mode of operation as and when required.
Rosbank solutions for individual clients
Under the current conditions, Rosbank stresses that a non-cash form of payments via Apple Pay and Google Pay and via distance channels, including Internet bank and Rosbank mobile application, remain the fastest and safest form of payment.
Our clients can take advantage of the mobile application to receive services and perform a wide range of daily financial transactions including payment for mobile services, utilities, taxes, fines and for currency exchange without visiting bank branches. ROSBANK Online is in 5 (IOS) and 7 (Android) most convenient mobile bank apps according to Markswebb.

We understand that our clients can face difficult financial situation in connection with the spread of coronavirus and we seek to consider such clients’ applications promptly and to find best customized solutions.
Rosbank solutions for employees of corporate clients
It is extremely important for us not to limit our corporate clients in their ability of transferring their employees to a remote mode of operation using the Internet-Client Bank and the Rosbank Business mobile application. We recommend installing the Rosbank Business app on your mobile device as an additional and convenient tool for solving everyday tasks. The mobile application is equally accessible on the mobile device both from the office and from home without any technical restrictions.
All systems and remote channels for corporate clients will continue to operate in a regular mode. For a comfortable transition to the "out of office" mode of operation, we have prepared instructions that will help you quickly switch to the mode that the situation may require. We pay special attention to the continuity of your work and the security of your funds. Switching to remote work does not reduce transaction security and does not increase the risks of fraudulent activities. Your financial transactions through digital channels are still under your control and reliable protection.
Our team is always in touch, the support service is strengthened and well-instructed. For all issues related to the work of remote services, you, as before, can contact us by phone 8-800-770-75-00 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
