Other factors taken into consideration included research and written articles, voluntary service, participation in sports and in social activities, etc.

The panel of judges was comprised of Runólfur Smári Steinthórsson, Professor at the University of Iceland, Guðrún Norðfjörð, Marketing Director at Forlagið and Sigríður Guðmundsdóttir, HR Manager at Landsbankinn.

Even tighter security in Landsbankinn’s app
We have now added settings to Landsbankinn’s app that further enhance security in card transactions and banking. These settings allow you to easily deactivate certain payment card functions in the app and to reactivate them just as easily at your convenience. If necessary, you can activate emergency closure that suspends the function of all of your cards and shuts down access to the app and online banking.
